Fuse Integration Service - Auto Dealership Management Demo, Part Three

This series of blog is based on building an auto dealership management system on Fuse Integration Service. We will be creating three major functions in the system.
  • Sales report tracking 
  • Vehicle inventory status
  • Customer IoT Service
We will be exporting a sales report to a web page, provide current inventory status of available cars through web service. And collect customer data from IoT devices on their car then alert close by shops. It would be better if you have some basic knowledge of Apache Camel before you begin, because I will not explain it in a great detail, I'll put my focus on how it works with the base platform, OpenShift. For Camel basic, you can check out my previous JBoss Fuse workshop. 

Part three of this series is the Customer IoT Service, here we have an application that will act as multiple cars constantly and random sending GPS location signal through restful endpoint and here we take the signal and see how close is this location to the dealer store. Step one is when we get the signal, we want to store it and pass it along to a medium and process the input data more efficiently. 
There are two endpoint for this service, web service and messaging broker. Webservice we have done it several times now, simple expose the port in the docker by setting the http port in docker maven plugin, 


and configure the service in pom.xml for fabric8 plugin to pick up. 


Normally, to setup broker, we need to specify the IP and port of the broker, this will cause problems on cloud. The characteristic of cloud is it's flexibility and freedom of adding and removing resource according to need, therefore it's not possible to pre-configure the broker that maybe available or could suddenly removed by upcoming incidents. That's why by take advantage of using the existing broker service we have already setup on Openshift, and using the fabric8 amq component, it will hide the complexity of the network setting, and auto discover where the broker is for you. If you take a look at the service list in OpenShift service console, 

Here, you can see the amq default protocol. We will be using this one, set the service name in the system environment variable inside pom.xml 
  • <fabric8.env.A_MQ_SERVICE_NAME>BROKER_AMQ_TCP</fabric8.env.A_MQ_SERVICE_NAME>

In our Camel Context, we want to configure the "" and provide our ID and PWD. 

<bean id="amqConnectionFactory" class="">
  <property name="userName" value="yyyy"/>
  <property name="password" value="xxxx"/>

After these configuration, we can start build our Camel route. What we do it simply place the incoming parameter into a messaging queue called "TESTQUEUE", and return a Done constant text to client sending the location. 

 <restConfiguration component="jetty" port="9191" />
  <rest path="/AutoDMS">
    <get uri="/cargps/{custName}/{geoloc}">
      <to uri="direct:customerTracking"/>
  <route id="customerTracking">
    <from uri="direct:customerTracking"/>
    <to pattern="InOnly" uri="amq:queue:TESTQUEUE"/>

Deploy the application as in part one and two by this command.
  • mvn -Pf8-local-deploy

In the console, you can find the gpsservice is up and running, 

Test the application by running the restful endpoint, 

In the application console, we see the route is active, 

and in the broker console, we can see the message in broker.

That's all for part three. See you in part four!


How can we connect to the AMQ which is running inside openshift v3 from external applications. For example I have a camel route from("amq:testQ").log({$body}).end();

How can some external application say like plain java or .net program connect to the AMQ and send some msg to the amq:testQ

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

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 …
