For a number of years we, at JBoss, have been discussing PaaS in various forms including Enterprise PaaS, Integration PaaS and BPM as a Service. We have been discussing each of these as independent components although each has obvious relationships with the others. As a result we have recently announced an update to our PaaS strategy, a unified offering that we are calling xPaas. Following the announcement, Mark Little has taken some time to present his thoughts on the topic and what can be expected over the coming weeks and months.

Dynamic Index Sharding in Hibernate Search
Index Sharding has been a core capability of Hibernate Search for years however, until now, it has been necessary for the number of shards to be specified explicitly within the Hibernate Search configuration. The 4.4.0.Beta1 release of HIbernate Search changes this by introducing a new feature, Dynamic Sharding, an introduction to which can be found in Sanne's post.
