JBoss Governance

Project Overlord 1.0.0.Final

The Overlord team is proud to announce the release of version 1.0.0.Final


Any computer system, whether it is centralized or distributed, needs some form of governance, i.e., the act of monitoring and managing the system. Such governance may be as simple as ensuring only authorized users have access to capabilities (e.g. services), or as complex as guaranteeing the system and its components maintain a level of availability or reliability in the presence of failures or increased system load. Managing distributed systems has always been a critical aspect for users, developers and administrators. As those distributed systems grew in scope and scalability, spanning multiple organizations with different infrastructures and trust boundaries, governance became more difficult but even more important. Governance deals with the processes by which a system operates. In order to have successful governance, some form of management, monitoring and administration is required for these processes



Cloud Computing

Red Hat has joined the Google Cloud Platform

We've been pretty busy lately so this is slightly delayed. However, I do want to announce that Red Hat has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program as a Technology Partner. Through this program, Red Hat and Google will collaborate on an open source community project known as JBoss CapeDwarf that increases the portability of Java-based Google App Engine applications and expands the deployment choices beyond Google’s cloud.

Hands On Guides

Block Drop -- A fun demo and tool for learning the fundamentals of Errai

Three months ago I became the Red Hat intern for Errai. Shortly afterwards I embarked on a modest task: to make a demo showing the world how awesome Errai is. I am now happy to present Block Drop, a simple multi-player, Tetris-like web game for the desktop or touch screen browsers.
