The past week hasn't seen any major event (which is to be expected, given that we are amid vacations seaso). That doesn't mean that there's nothing to report - in fact we have quite a number of interesting news.
The future of RichFaces: stability over innovation
Brian Leathem, the RichFaces project lead, has shared an outlook on the future of the project, considering its place in a world where client-side frameworks and single-page applications have started to become the dominating trend, at the expense of server-side rendering. JSF remains an integral part of the Java EE specification, and will continue to have a well-determined role in certain classes of projects, and the RichFaces project will continue to evolve to meet the demands on the new JSF specifications, without necessarily focusing on innovation, as it did so far.
A little about Fuse Service Works
Kenneth Peeples has published a couple of articles about Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works, the first outlining the main components and services of the product. The second, more technical, focuses on using Docker with BPM-Suite and FSW.
Infinispan Security: Authorization and Auditing
Tristan Tarrant provides a few updates on the Infinitispan authorization model, and the main changes as of 7.0.0.Alpha5, as well as new features such as auditing.
Keep learning about jBPM
One great thing about jBPM is the large number of learning resources - and we're not talking only about articles and tutorials. One of the latest available options is Mariano De Maio's new book, "jBPM 6 Developer Guide", to be published soon by Packt Publishing. Or, you can attend the session at BPM Openhouse 2014, a virtual event to take place between September 22-26. And if you want to know why, Eric Schabell is giving you all the good reasons.
Also, on the BPM front, an interesting example developed by Eric and Maciej Swiderski showcases a document-based BPM process, using jBPM and a CMIS-compatible content management system (Apache Chemistry in this case).
