Arun's Tip Corner
In his first Tech Tip of the week Arun continues the work he began in Tech Tip #25 by introducing a second Raspberry PI and showing how to configure a WildFly Managed Domain controlling servers on both devices. He continues this work in his second Tech Tip by introducing a third Raspberry PI, running mod_proxy, and using this to balance the incoming load between the WildFly servers running in the Managed Domain. Arun's third Tech Tip takes us through the WildFly patching mechanism, introduced in WildFly 8.0.0, and demonstrates how this can be used in either offline or online mode. Arun finishes the week with the next installment in his series on developing a Java EE 7 Batch Addon for JBoss Forge.
Now that Eric has finished the BRMS portion of his workshops he has created a bundle that allows you, with a single command, to install the completed workshop to your OpenShift account. Eric also continues the BPMN segment of the workshop by walking us through the creation of the domain model and follows that with another episode showing the creation of the Rewards Process. Eric's last post discusses many of the configuration properties that can be used to tailor an installation of BRMS or BPMS and how they can be used in a local installation or through the OpenShift cartridge.
