Welcome another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial. We begin this month's series of Editorials with a request for help from our friends behind the Red Hat Developers site. Red Hat Developers are working to create a new developer community and need your help in order to shape it, they will be running monthly surveys to learn about the topics that interest you in order to help deliver content that you will find interesting and worth reading. These surveys will not take very long to complete, usually taking up about a minute or so of your time, so please help to shape this community by providing feedback. You can head over to this month's survey to begin or, if you are feeling more adventurous, you may even decide to join the many community members who are already contributing to the site.
Running JBoss HR Employee Rewards project in the Cloud
In his App Dev Cloud Stack series Eric Schabell has been making a strong case for why application developers shouldn't be ignoring their stack. He has discussed the various layers that are involved, also including the use of the Container Development Kit and some example applications. In this week's post Eric takes this a step further by walking us through a more complicated example of an application running within the Cloud, in this case an HR employee rewards example based on JBoss BPM.
Camel in Action 2 - Work in Progress
It has been over a year since Claus and Jonathan began writing an update to the popular Camel in Action book and while they have made significant progress over the year there is still a lot of work that remains to be done. The current effort has already exceeded the page count of the original book however Claus and Jonathan have much more to give, extending the topics in the book to cover many new areas that are now included within the camel ecosystem. If you are interested in Camel then consider signing up for the Early Access Program, any feedback you can provide will go a long way to help in the development of the book.
