With the Northern Summer continuing you would be forgiven for thinking that with so many people taking well deserved breaks we would see a drastic reduction in the amount of content being produced from within our communities. I'm pleased to say that the reduction is not as great as you may think so please take your seats, strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride as we take you on another journey through the JBoss Communities.
Maciej has recently given a presentation on Knowledge Driven Microservices at both DevConf.cz and JBCNConf. If you have attended either of these conferences, or have an interest in developing Knowledge Driven Microservices, then take a look at his recent post where he discusses the architecture for his example application, provides the slides from JBCNConf and also a recording of the DevConf.cz presentationhttp://mswiderski.blogspot.com/2016/07/knowledge-driven-microservices.html.
If you are after more general advice on Microservices, especially if you are also interested in how these could be run within the OpenShift Container Development Kit, then Rafael has a post introducing the technologies that are being used within the Helloworld-MSA demo along with a link to Burr's introductory video showing how to get started with the demo application.
EAP 7 and Domain Deployments
The release of EAP 6 brought with it a new way of managing a set of EA based servers as an integrated topology, the concept of the domain and its controllers. This concept has been further enhanced as part of the recent release of EAP 7. In the first of a five part series discussing several of the deployment options that are now possible when using a domain, Elvadas sets the groundwork for the remainder of his series by taking us through the steps that are necessary to create and run a simple domain consisting of five EAP servers.
Which Fuse to Choose?
If you are considering a Fuse deployment within your organisation then you have likely realised that there are a number of deployment options that are available to you, each with their own strengths. While there is not always a right answer to the question of which to choose there are some guidelines, such as those written by Bryan, that can help you to identify which option is likely to be the best for you and your situation.
The Hibernate community have released the latest edition of their Community Newsletter highlighting interesting articles and discussions from their community that include topics such as multi-tenancy, additional capabilities that are not part of the JPA specification, spatial queries, performance and many more.
JBoss Out and About
This year's Red Hat Tech Exchange in APAC will be taking place in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam from September 4th until September 8th 2016 however one regular presenter, Eric Schabell, will not be present. Never fear though, Eric has submitted two proposals for consideration and has persuaded Andrew Block to present them on his behalf.
That's all for this week, please join us again next week when we will take another look at the work being done within the JBoss Communities.
