Welcome to a new edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial ! This week a series of articles will give a in depth overview of the numerous features of Hawkular and glimpse in the new major version of the Byteman. Enjoy !
Byteman 4 is almost there !
This week saw the releases of Byteman 4.0.0-BETA0 ! And on top of the announcement, the blog post also takes the time to walk you through some new features of the tool.
In bed with Hawkular
Hawkular has been a lot of action last week ! First of all, a very complete article on Hawkular APM supports OpenTracing and Alerts was released, follow by an other one on Hawkular APM Distributed Tracing of Polyglot Application using Zipkin Instrumentations. Finally, a third article covers A DSL for Alert Trigger Definitions in Hawkular. All of those articles are very thorough and will give the reader a very clear idea of the features of the project and how to use to implement the best suited monitoring for one's application.
Last, but not the least, the announcement of Hawkular OpenShift Agent is Born ! Certainly not a minor one, as this agent will certainly increase the capacities of Hawkular to monitor and operate OpenShift environment.
The last week also saw the release of a couple of very interesting article. The first one comes from the Narayana project, which is famous for being the transaction manager of Wildfly (and JBoss AS). This article discusses Achieving Consistency in a Microservices Architecture, which is certainly an interesting and quite relevant topic for these days.
The other one that really caught my eye, is on OpenShift and Infinispan's Node Affinity. Indeed, for years now, I have always thought that Infinispan and OpenShift was a match made in heaven, and this article, while on a very focus aspect of the integration, is certainly proof of that.
Releases, releases, releases...
The last week was rather quiet when it cames to releases, but both still features a couple of new releases for the Teiid project (plus the forementioned release of Byteman:
Bored with Java ? Want to explore something else ? Well, good news, for once this section will NOT talk about Docker (incredible) but of Node.js ! So if you are feeling like it, go on and discover Node Core Modules Exploration (Cluster).
