Fuse Integration Service - Getting your Local Environment ready!

Fuse Integration Service allows developer to package and build application into containerized docker image, the whole idea of how the software is package should not impact how the developer works. But what if a developer wants to start developing without the OpenShift environment?  Since Docker is only available on linux (unless you install conversion tools), in majority of cases, developer would be working on either Windows or Max OS.  So I am going to show you how to setup your own OpenShift in your laptop(desktop).

You will need to have download the following OpenSource software.

Installing above software are pretty straight forward, just follow the default installation instruction. Then we are going to setup our Vagrant virtual machine to run the containerized version of OpenShift Enterprise on our laptop. Go to openshift-vagrant project to get the developer tooling.

Create a folder in your machine, and download the openshift-vagrant by

  • git clone

Go into the openshift-vagrant/cdk-v2 folder, before we start setting up the application, there are a few plugin w have to install, run the following command to install the plugins.

  • vagrant plugin install vagrant-registration 
  • vagrant plugin install vagrant-adbinfo 
(OPTIONAL)And registered your account in the rhn network, and has subscription to RHEL server. To register you account find a RHEL server and register your account 
  • subscription-manager register --username <username> --password <password> --auto-attach
(OPTIONAL) Back to your local laptop command line console, set the registered account info by running following command.
  •  export SUB_USERNAME=<your-subscription-username>
  •  export SUB_PASSWORD=<your-subscription-password>
(NOTE: you do not have to have the RHEL account, if you you don't have one, don't worry about the two above steps)

And finally, go back your machine, under openshift-vagrant/cdk-v2   we can get started to install OpenShift on our laptop run 
  • vagrant up
If you did not set the SUB_USERNAME and SUB_PASSWORD,  you will be promoted with option during setup,

  • Would you like to register the system now (default: yes)? 

please type "n" to avoid registering.)

If everything installed went well, you should be able to see the OpenShift console ( in your browser. 

Run and setup the Atomic Developer Bundle, to setup your Docker environment
  • eval "$(vagrant adbinfo)"

   export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://
   export DOCKER_CERT_PATH=<your_local_cert_path>
   export DOCKER_MACHINE_NAME=<your_docker_machine>

this will disable your OpenShift container, so we will need to restart using vagrant command.
  • vagrant provision
Next, we want to download install OpenShift CLI, 
  • Microsoft Windows
  • Apple OS X
Extract the downloaded file to a folder of your preference, and add the oc to 
  • export PATH=$PATH:<your-oc-extract-path>
Now, in your browser, go to OpenShift Console,  and login with your register ID/PWD, if you did not supply anything, type in admin/admin (or anything you prefer) as ID/PWD.  Create your first project by clicking on "New Project":

Type "demo" for the project name

Once you see the project on the console, congratulation!

You have successfully setup the environment.

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.

Old Camel Route
New Camel Route

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

double-click it, and start installing with default values.

After successful installation, we will need install the plugins for Fuse, on JBoss Central view, select software update, select enable early access.

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 …
