Welcome to another Week in JBoss where we bring you the latest from around the JBoss Communities.
Red Hat to Acquire FeedHenry
We begin this week with news of an exciting development with Red Hat recently announcing a definitive agreement to acquire FeedHenry, bringing leading enterprise mobile application technology and a great team into our community. FeedHenry develop a cloud-based mobile application platform using Node.js and Java, complimenting our existing efforts around mobile and polyglot. In welcoming FeedHenry to JBoss Mark Little has also shared some of his thoughts on what will be an exciting development.
In his first post of the week Markus introduces us to some of the features in the recent WildFly 9.0.0.Alpha1 release before delving into the real purpose of the article, introducing us to the new integration developing between the hawtio console and the application server. It's early days for this work but it is already looking promising. Markus' second post sees him talking with Jeff Genender, a Java Champion, Apache Member and Java Open Source Consultant, about Apache and Integration. Markus' final post introduces us to the SwitchYard 2.0.0.Alpha2 release, a component based service development framework based on Camel. Markus explains how to install everything that is needed to develop SwitchYard applications then provides a quick introduction to a simple bean service, explaining how service contracts are defined, service references can be injected and how the service is configured.
Eric's Tips & Tricks
If you have been using drools or jBPM lately then you will already be aware that both projects make use of maven as their repository, defaulting to your normal maven settings. If you want to change this behaviour, using individual settings for each of your servers, then Eric has the solution in his first tip. In his second tip Eric discusses options for initiating a jBPM process, providing examples that you can use within your own applications.
Infinispan Events, Hot Rod Remoting and the Cache
The Infinispan team have been focussing on events this week. The first post continues their series on Hot Rod Remote Events and discussing the topic of customisation, how to modify the contents of these events to include additional information or to reduce the size of the events by removing information that is not needed. The second post covers the integration of CDI and Caching events, providing examples that show how to produce and consume events through the cache.
JAX-WS in WildFly
Our very own Alessio Soldano, Red Hat's representative on the JAX-WS specification, has just finished writing a book on webservices. Allessio's book first provides an introduction to JAX-WS, then moves on to the development of webservices before finishing with a number of discussions on more advanced topics. The book is currently available in electronic form with the printed edition coming soon.
JBoss Asylum and ModeShape
Writing Rules with POJOs
The drools team have been developing some ideas for writing rules using POJOs. Check out Mark's post for an example of the syntax and details of a project that shows the current ideas in action.
