JBoss Fuse - Updates of Fuse 101 Labs

I have been updating my previous demos and lab so they can be all up to date and applies to the latest Fuse 6.2 version. And now I am starting to regret why I have created so many demos … But when every time I go back to previous work, there are always something that can be worked on or improve. It's actually a good thing. So don't be surprised if I end up re-writing the entire demo.

I spent a few days updating My Camel 101 Labs, so here are the links to my labs and things I've changed when migrating to Fuse 6.2, summarizing for those of you who has already done the lab, and wants to see what has been updated in a quick glance. (Note, the page counts in things I've changed, does not include the title page.)

Lab 1. Camel basic and components

Things I update: 
Page 2, updated to new Camel version : 2.15.1.redhat-620133
Page 6,7, new JBDS tooling, with a lot more built-in component, before I ask people to fill in the uri of each component, but now we can take advantage of using the tooling by filling in variable in properties view.
Page 10,11,12 Introduce the new debugging capability in Fuse 6.2

Lab 2. Data Transformation

Things I update:
Page 4,5, Since we now have a great drag and drop data mapping tool in JBDS, I remove the simple jaxb unmarshaller, and use dozer and jaxb that comes with the data mapping tool. So first added the XSD file needed for the conversion.
Page 7, added image to make instruction more clear
Page 8,9,  Start the Data Mapping using new data mapping tool.
Page 10, Update marshaller with new screen shots
Page 12, Remove test dependency as it will mess up when deploy to fabric

Lab 3. Enterprise Integration Pattern

Things I update:
Page 1, update to the new route diagram in Fuse 6.2
Page 2,3,4,5,6,7, Instead of listing all the node and properties participants needs to fill in, I change the way describing how to add, delete modify the components. By relinking, re-ordering the nodes. And allow more interaction with the new component tooling.
Page 8, updated Route diagram.
Page 9,10, same as before, more screen shots.
Page 11. updated the diagram to latest Fuse 6.2 look.

Lab 4. Bean Registry

Things I update:
Page 3,4 Add more screen shots, and more detail description on how to add bean reference.
Page 8, use new Component in Tooling and update active-camel dependency version to 5.11.0.redhat-620133

Lab 5. OSGi Container

Things I update:
I rewrite the entire lab for this one, because of the updated of the tooling, we can now set JBoss Fuse Karaf as server in JBDS. And add application just like using Java EE containers.

  • Shows how to setup server in JBDS
  • Show how to use the shell console in JBDS
  • Show how to add application to server
  • Show OSGi JMX view and Camel route view in Fuse integration Tooling 

Lab 6. Fuse Fabric

Things I update:
Page 2, Update to new console view
Page 3,4, updates the new fabric8:deploy setup, remove the jolokia address setting.
Page 5,6,7,8 update to new Fuse console view
Page 9, Add how to stop container and servers.

Link on the Lab title will take you back to my previous workshop blog, Enjoy!

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 …

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.

Fuse Integration Service - Setup JBDS and create first quickstart application

Before we go and start creating our first application, I want to show you how to setup your JBoss Developer Studio, create a small application from the quickstart example and then running it on Fuse Integration Service.

I am using JBoss Developer Studio version 9, you can find it here.
After download the

And select JBoss Fuse Development for the plugin,

Click on install, and we are all set to go!

First thing first, we want to create a Fuse project to deploy on the base of Fuse Integration Service, which is OpenShift. If you have not installed it, please go back to my previous post for instructions. So on your JBDS, right click and start creating the project. Select new, maven project, if you have installed the plugin correctly, you should …
