JBoss Fuse - What's new in JBoss Fuse 6.2

Have been busy for a while, other then working on my Lab for Summit, I am also working on migrating my early Home Loan getting started demo to JBoss Fuse 6.2 which is going launch later in the month.

What is going on JBoss Fuse 6.2.

First of all, MY PERSONAL FAVORITE, which is the huge improvement on the Development tool, JBoss Developer Studio. One of the thing I always wants to have is DEBUGGING. Now we can actually set the debug point on every endpoint of the applications, and then through the debug view, we can now see the stack frame for the suspended threads for each route. What I found the most helpful is the view that allow you to trace or even change the header and body in Camel message. The way to start the debugging is just like other Java application. In JBoss Developer Studio, click on "Run as Debug..". Other really cool improvement is the addition of commonly use component available on Camel canvas. The properties now provides the out of box built in configuration field that is going to help developer on what can be configure in that particular components rather then going back and forward to the fuse documentation. To improve development experience, one thing I notice from the tooling, when you drag n drop a component in the canvas, the dependency in the pom.xml file is automatically added.

There are also improvement on the camel components (version 2.15.1) and quite a few new connector added. We have improve the salesforce, Olingo component, added the connectors to Dropbox,  and Google Drive. To me, because I need to interact Database very often, now I can finally use Simple expressions as parameters in the SQL components. I have not play with all of them yet, but be sure to check them out. Another really useful feature in this release is the REST DSL, this allow developer to  establish the REST web endpoint with few lines of setting versus creating and configure in POJO then exposes as the old ways.

Another important new feature is the Role Base Access Control. Powered by JAAS implemented. Many enterprise needed this in real production environment, what this does, it authorized user's right on access the Fuse console, JMX, command line mode and the service allowed in OSGi.

Here are main update themes in JBoss Fuse 6.2 ,

 * Improved tooling & Usability
 * Foundation for creating and sharing API services (REST DSL, Swagger support)
 * Additional connectivity (Box, Dropbox, GoogleDrive, OData, SalesForce APEX API)
 * Enhanced IoT support (Camel-Kura, MQTT improvements)
 * Messaging enhancements..

You can find out more details in Jon's blog.

Thanks a lot Christina.

I am pretty new to JBOSS fuse. I have query - i have an input message in CSV format. The requirement is to process the CSV data for which i need to make an external webservice call for most of the rows (sometimes few rows will be grouped based on business logic) , and then finally update the CSV with the results from webservice. Can you please advice me the best option to do it in JBOSS fuse.

If it's as simple as you said, and not considering the size of the file, and not sure what your logic on the grouping, I would have a File Endpoint reading the CSV file, process (and possibly group it), send the required into to a queue, and have another route handle the web service call via CXF Producer, get the response, send to another queue, and then pick up by another route that return and export the result to another CSV file.

i installed jbds 8.1.0 and jdk 1.8. When I run local came route in jbds its not coming up in local processes in jmx navigator. But I am able to connect to the local processes using user defined connection. Can you please advise why i am not able to see local processes automatically in jmx navigator.. i tried to replicate this issue in my personal laptop and everything is working fine, but in office system I am facing this issue, to my knowledge both systems has same versions... Is it something to do with permissions on the office system? Thanks for your help.

Red Hat JBoss Fuse/A-MQ - Fuse and A-MQ Version 6.3 GA is released!

Fuse and A-MQ 6.3 GA has just went out. Maybe, you would think this is just only a minor version release why should I care? Hold your thoughts on that! Because they have done a lot of improvements and also added many new features into this release.

Besides various bug fixes and making sure Fuse Fabric is much more stable. There are two major change in this version update:

New Tooling in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) 9.1 GA. Newer Apache Camel version – Camel v2.17. I was really impressed by the work put in to make developing Camel application much simpler. First is the installation of tooling itself. Now it has a all-in-one installer so you don't need to worry about which plugins you need to check. See the videos below to see the new "Getting Started" of Fuse 6.3.

And If you notice from the above video, the presentation of camel route in JBDS has also updated. It fixed some of the miss representation of logic and making it easier to read.

Red Hat JBoss Fuse - Getting Started with Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview

I just realized that I did not do a getting started for Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview before I did the pipeline demo, thanks for those of you who reminded me! :)

To get started with FIS 2.0, for people who has just getting to know the technology, here is how I interpret it. Basically, it's divide into two aspect,

1. Integration development, FIS uses Apache Camel as the core technology that creates, orchestrate, compose microservices into a super lightweight thin integration layer, and become the API provider and service orchestrator through exposing RESTful or messaging service endpoints. And you can choose to either package and run it with Spring-Boot or Karaf.

2. Application Deployment and Management, FIS takes advantages of OpenShift platform, and allows you to separately deploy the micro-integration service among distributed environment, at the same time takes care of the failover, high availability, load balancing and service lookup problem for you.

So, now we know …
