Welcome to the JBoss weekly editorial. This is a premiere for me, because it's actually the first ever post on this blog. It is my pleasure to bring you the most important news from the JBoss Community for this week.
This week was all about Devoxx Belgium. With Red Hat as a Platinum sponsor there's been a lot going on around it. Beside the fact, that we hat 12 speaker on site which gave a total of 18 sessions we also had the pleasure to talk about our xPaaS offerings in the Wednesday keynote. In this keynote we took a look at what’s happening today around cloud and PaaS and presented some ideas and visions as to what may be the future of enterprise application development. The demo included a complete integration beginning with a mobile client and reaching all the way through to JBoss Fuse running on Open Shift Enterprise. The following blog-posts summarize the technical background of the keynote and give further pointer for you to dig into:

Further on he published his slides from his Devoxx university talk "Nuts and Bolts of Websocket". And I gave an interview to Voxxed about Java EE and why it is important to contribute to the community.
News in Middleware and OpenShift
Mark Little pushed out some thoughts about the trends in middleware. His OpenSlava keynote was recorded and is now available for everybody to watch. More generally he reflected about EAP and the platform this week. The OpenShift team published a twenty minute interview which gets to the core of what OpenShift V3 is all about and how Red Hat's deep portfolio of open source solutions and outside community projects come together to make it all possible. You can also learn how to deploy a PostgresSQL Pod in OpenShift V3. The OptaPlanner Team wrote about the importance for open benchmarks. Another article in the series about "Tricks Competitors Play" talks about "pushing less functional products".

The RHQ Team is busy to integrate messaging into RHQ and they started to work on rhq-msg which is a simple messaging API built on top of ActiveMQ and JMS. The tools team released an early access version of the Integration Tools for Eclipse Luna. Jamie Goodyear wrote a little tool which outputs your Camel route metrics in a Linux top like manner. Claus Ibsen wrote about what is cooking for next Camel 2.15 release which will be a lot smarter.
