Another week almost behind us. Today is Thanksgiving and the start into a silent week for most of us non Americans. But the good news is, the JBoss community never sleeps and has some news for you every week. Time to start over with the weekly editorial which brings you the latest news from all of JBoss. This time, I'm going to cover three particular highlights:


Vert.x - Reactive Applications On The JVM

Vert.x is a tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM. Unlike restrictive traditional application containers, Vert.x gives you incredible power and agility to create compelling, scalable, 21st century applications the way you want to, with a minimum of fuss, in the language you want. This includes JavaScript. In a recent blog-post Paulo Lopes explains what you have to do to port your existing EcmaScript 5 applications to EcmaScript 6. If you want to learn more about it, the project team provides a wide range of examples demonstrating usage of Vert.x in many different situations - from getting started with a hello world example in Maven to a range of web application examples. Don't forget to follow project lead Tim Fox (@timfox).


Make your JBoss EAP Fuse ready!

Christina Lin started an interesting series about how to make your JBoss EAP installation ready for Fuse. With the upcoming JBoss Fuse 6.2.1 release Red Hat is supporting a new scenario: Running Camel on EAP. And because Fuse and especially Camel are so rich in terms of features, it takes a couple of blog-posts to walk you through the various development options. The first part showed you how to use the Spring Framework to define your Camel route. The second explains everything about using CDI with the Java DSL to create your routes and the third part uses plain XML without Spring. The final post glues everything together and gives you a complete walk-through on how to integrate your Camel CDI application with a Database.
