JBoss Fuse - Make your JBoss EAP Fuse ready!

In the upcoming release of JBoss Fuse 6.2.1, we are going to support running Camel on EAP. That means now you can now run Camel Route in JBoss EAP. But first thing first, how do we get our JBoss Enterprise application server ready?

JBoss EAP is a very modularized architecture, which allows you to add/remove the modules that you do not need when starting up this JavaEE standard container. The modules are called subsystems in JBoss EAP. By placing the libraries, dependencies setting in EAP, and setup the subsystem in the configuration xml (default is standalone.xml or domain.xml depends on your mode). You can basically plug and run your libraries in JBoss EAP. So JBoss Fuse will do the same thing by add a subsystem called "camel".

Don't worry about the whole technical details, because in JBoss Fuse 6.2.1 you will receive a patch file, that will automatically does all the hard work for you! For those of people who has not install JBoss EAP before, all you have to do is to download JBoss EAP 6.4.0, and startup the installer.

You will then have the JBoss EAP ready to go, to make your EE container JBoss Fuse ready, please download the fuse-eap-installer-6.2.1.redhat-xxx.jar, which is the patch that installed the camel subsystem.

Place the fuse-eap-installer-6.2.1.redhat-xxx.jar under where you installed the EAP container. and then run

java -jar fuse-eap-installer-6.2.1.redhat-xxx.jar

You will notice there are few patching script created for you under bin folder, and also libraries installed under modules folder. Don't worry about this for now, the most important after patching, is you will find several new configuration sample xml under standalone/configuration and domain/configurations.

  • domain-camel.xml
  • standalone-camel.xml
  • standalone-full-camel.xml 

and it will also change your default configurations,

  • domain.xml
  • standalone.xml
  • standalone-full.xml
  • standalone-ha.xml
  • standalone-full-ha.xml

You will also find the there are management consoles installed too.

So, now go to bin/ and run or standalone.bat if you are on windows, then you are ready!

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.
