Despite the fact that last week many people - including me - were on holiday , the JBoss community has far from stop thriving, and numerous interesting releases happened.

Teiid comes out of the bush
Teiid is certainly a weird lizard, and very few people knows about it, but thankfully to the Emmanuel Bernard and the JBoss Asylum team, there is now a full podcast dedicated to the project, where Steve Hawkins and Ramesh Reddy explain to you in details what Teiid is all about.
This comes as a perfect opportunity to learn more about the product as the team just released 8.9 alpha 1. Time to turn your numerous and complex databases into gold and build the data you want !
Immutant 1.1.4 Released

BRMS is certainly a fascinating technology, but, as often with such complex project, it's difficult to know where to start. Fortunately, Eric S. Schabell has dediced, by popular demand, to revisit its "JBoss BRMS Primer - getting started with JBoss BRMS". Certainly an excellent opportunity to discover (or rediscover) what BRMS is all about, and what it can do for you...
Keycloak 1.0 Beta 4 Released

In case you don't know it, here is what Keycloak is about : integrated SSO and IDM for browser apps and RESTful web services. It's built on top of the OAuth 2.0, Open ID Connect and JSON Web Token (JWT) specifications.
