Greetings to all and welcome to this new edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial. This new editorial is published one week after the end of the Devoxx event, one week after the election of Donald Trump but also one week after many news that you will discover hereafter.
Administrate jBPM more easily
Middleware solutions like many products must deal with situations which are sometimes not taken into consideration when a project is designed. This is particularly the case when we have to manage Business Processes as tasks/processes could be assigned to persons which are not working anymore for a company, have moved to another department, .... Hopefully, the new version of jBPM 7.0 offers an Administration Api in order to handle more easily such use cases as described by Maciej Swiderski in its article.
Roadmap of BRMS/BPMS & co (event)
When we design a solution for a middleware project in a company, it is very important & critical to select the right technology but also to have a good visibility about how the technology will evolve over the next months.
Hopefully, Marc Proctor (co-creator of Drools) , Kris Verlaenen (jBPM), Mauricio Salatino (Cloud capabilities of BRMS/BPMS), Geoffrey Desmet (OptaPlanner) & Max Barkley (Errai) will share their visions and roadmap during this Skillsmatter event scheduled the 22nd of November in London. Some seats are still available.
Remark : For those which are curious to see how to use Hawkular top of OpenShift in order to collect such traces, metrics using a Go Feed client here is a short 10min demo !
Decompose your Database
Last week at Devoxx, Edson Yanaga has presented during its talk different strategies to decompose an existing monolithic database into shards, multiple databases, schemas but also how the migration process could take place. The perfect tool, demonstrated by Yanaga, is Debezium and it will help you to capture from an existing database the data changes as streams in order to design your Microservice connected to a backend. A new release of Debezium is out & provides new great features as by example the ability to use with multi-master MySQL servers as sources. You can discover this new release here as presented by Randall Hauch.
