Microservices are commodity
Before jumping into some in-depth, technical articles, let's take a short step back, and look at things from higher vintage point with this excellent article on Microservices are Commodity.
Riding a camel for Xmas ?
Camel are certainly not the first animal one associates with Christmas, but this should certainly prevent anyone to enjoy this cool article on Camel Live Reload of XML routes. An if you are looking for more in depth information on Camel itself, you probably want to check out the Status of Camel in Action 2nd edition book. Or, if not, at least take a peak, at this article on Red Hat JBoss Fuse - Automate integration CI/CD processes. In any case, after that, you'll be ready to cross any desert...
Techbytes - Treat yourself a Xmas gift - dwelve into Infinispan
As the holiday season generally means finally a bit of time to do some long due exploring of some cool, new technologies, so the Infinispan and the Hawkuler one have both though of you, and released some pretty neat articles. On the Infinispan side, a first article, Infinispan: Spring Boot Starters, walk you through setting up Infinispan as part of a Spring Boot app - certainly an efficient way to start using Infinispan, if you are already familliar with Spring Boot (otherwise, did you heard of JBoss Forge ? ).
if you are already an Infinispan user, the second article might be more up your alley. It's a more in depth introduce some major changes, coming in 9.0 : Data Container Changes Part 1. Be prepare for the next big thing coming in Infinispan !
Fiddle for Drools and CLI for Hawkular
If you, like me, have to play around with Drools on a regular basis, i'm pretty sure you'll find this nugget very useful: Introducing the new Drools Fiddle. Along those lines, a brief introduction to a pretty neat CLI tool for Hawkular - Hawkinit will probably be equally useful(ok, i'm partial, I just love CLI tools...).
Releases, releases, releases...

Already to jittery for Java ? Time for something else ? Well, then I could not pass anyway this opportunity to mention this article from last week describing
How to get started with Microsoft SQL Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux ! SQL Server on Linux ? Aren't we living interesting times !
Also, a bit more closer to the Java root of the JBoss Community, the third part of a very interesting series about using Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization on OpenShift: Part 3 – Data federation. Certainly take a look at it, especially if you are not familiar with JBoss Data Virtualization (or its Open Source pendant, Teiid). It think it may pick your interest...
