Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial, this week bringing you a double dose of news as we try to catch-up on a selection of Community news that has been published over the last two weeks.
BRMS, BPMS and Fuse with Christina and Eric
Limiting Requests with APIMan
In the sixth article in his series on the JBoss API Management framework, Len introduces us to the management policies that are designed to limit the behaviour of client requests. As of APIMan 1.1.6 we have access to the Rate Limiting policy, a Quota policy and a Transfer Quota Policy, each of which can be employed individually to throttle requests or combined to provide a solution with greater flexibility.
Improved LDAP Integration within KeyCloak
If you have been paying attention to the work taking place within KeyCloak then you are likely aware of the existing LDAP integration. With the release of KeyCloak 1.3.1 this integration has been greatly improved through the inclusion of LDAP mappers, providing you with greater flexibility in specifying which data can be synced to KeyCloak and written back.
One of the most interesting aspects of the Hawkular project is the alerting service provided by Hawkular Alerts, a component that provides the ability to define flexible triggers based on complex reasoning over events raised within your application. In order to demonstrate these capabilities Lucas has created a video that covers the installation, configuration and use of Hawkular Alerts and has combined this with an introductory post covering some of the details that are of interest when watching the video.
Asynchronous Processing with jBPM
The release of jBPM 6.0 saw the inclusion of the jBPM Executor component, responsible for handling the background, asynchronous processing within the jBPM process flows, and is a capability that has been enhanced as part of the jBPM 6.3 release. In the first of two articles Maciej covers the jBPM Executor, describing its capabilities and how it works, and then follows this with his second article where he discusses some of the enhancements that have recently been made to jBPM 6.3 through a real use-case.
Infinispan's Functional Map API
The Infinispan 8.0.0.Beta3 release introduced a new experimental map-like API that uses lambdas to interact with data, allowing you to take advantage of the new functional programming and asynchronous capabilities that are now available through Java 8. In the first part of a series covering this new API Galder takes us through the motivation that led to its creation, answering some key questions and setting the scene for the remainder of the series.
