This week editorial is eventful indeed, as it features a lof of events being either announced or launched in the last days. But rest assure, even if you can not attend any of those, whether its DevNation or Bela Ban's JGroups Workshop, there is also a bunch of interesting articles and news for you ! Maybe reading and them and discovering some new, cool technologies, would not the worth thing to do on Labor Day tomorrow ...
Welcome Google Summer of Code Students 2015 to JBoss ! If you consider attempting the now famous GoSC, please checkout the projects the JBoss Community is proposing - you may find the best topic for you !
With those events coming up soon, we've been mentioning the Red Hat Summit and DevNation quite a lot lately. But that a very special news we have about those this week : the Devoxx4Kids CFP has been launched ! So, if you plan to go to any of the previously mentioned events with your family, give your kids a real threat and register them (or, even better, consider applying to the CFP).
Regarding, the DevNation and Summit them self, if you are interested by Processes, Rules and Events (so jBPM), you'll see that already quite a lot of tracks covers this topic.
At last, but certainly not the least, Bela Ban, leader of the JGroups project - on which is built Wildfly clustering and Infinispan, has announced a couple of JGroups workshops in New York and Mountain View. This is would a perfect opportunity to learn from "the master" directly but also deep-dive into advanced features or simply recent ones.
If you have a day off tomorrow, maybe it's time to seat back and catch up with some reading. And this week, the JBoss Community has been quite prolific ! First is our very own Mark Little, who took the time to wrap up its own thoughts on Microservices and events. Next is a sum up from Thomas Qvarnström and Markus Eisele on their recent joint webinar on Continuous Delivery with Docker Containers and Java EE. If you are not done after those two, or just craving for something else, Kenneth Peeples opened - and discussed, an intriguing question : What are the benefits of Node.js ?
The previous article were quit high level, on might say, but if you may desire something a bit more practical, so why not jump into Integration Testing JBoss Fuse 6.x ?
Release or die !
Well, it's certainly not true that some of us would die if nothing was released, but it is also a fact that JBoss Community always opt to release anyway - so here are the major releases of last week:
- JBoss EAP 6.4 now available
- In Relation To... Hibernate ORM 5.0.0.Beta2 Release
- Teiid 8.11 Beta1 and 8.10.1 Released
- along with an interesting Quickstart example with Dockerized Teiid
- JBoss Tools - JBoss Tools Alpha2 for Eclipse Mars has some very cool features including:
- native WildFly 9 runtime detection and server support
- OpenShift integration now allows connection to OpenShift 3 in addition to the existing OpenShift 2 support.
As like every week, our Evangelists have kept publishing new cool contents to the JBoss community, such as Eric D. Schabell's Slides from Online PEX Webinar - A Guide to Modern BPM Tools, or the new chapter in the When xPaaS meets DEVOPS (Part Three) series from Christina Lin.
I like to always finished this editorial by looking a bit outside the Java universe, as only very few Java program run only on their own, so it is always to keep one mind open. OK, so maybe this time I've been a tidbit nostalgic, but I must admit this article on Remote debugging with GDB on the Red Hat Developer Blog caught my eye.
It reminded the time of master degree, when I was experimenting C programming on Unix system, and programming was still a new and simple world, simple as a "hello the world" program. (Spending part of my week fighting my IDE and trying to get my stuff to build properly may have been the source of such nostalgia ! ).
That's all for this week's spin through the JBoss world, please join us again next week when we will take you through more interesting and informative articles written by our communities.
