Every week, the JBoss community releases some new software, but a lot of those releases are often framework or just bricks of more complex software (on this note, surprisingly, not Arquillian related release this week, for instance!). But this last week was different, because most of the releases where about products. Software you can run and deploy - and more importantly, use to implement solution to your problem. So, with new releases for Infinispan, Teiid, Keycloak, and even Windup, I'm calling it : it's raining (good) software !
As always, the JBoss evangelist have been busy releasing interesting content in the last days. The ever prolific Eric D. Schabell wrote an interesting article on how to add complex business logic to processes with JBoss BPM, but also took some time to discuss the upcoming Devoxx France 2017: Ready for AppDev, Cloud and a Circus? And while on the topic of BPM & BRMS, an excellent technical article on how the KIE Server Router integrated with workbench has also been released.
On her side, Christina Lin discussed Applying API Best Practices in Fuse on the RHD Blog. Given the importance of API, and their importance, in ensuring that business runs smoothly, it is most definitely a crucial topic.
Explore new territories with Infinispan & Keycloak
Last week saw the release of both new Infinispan version (with Infinispan 9.0.0.Beta2 and 8.2.6.Final are out!) and Keycloak (Keycloak 2.5.1.Final Released), but also the release of a couple of interesting articles discussing their new feature or architecture changes. The first one is actually the second part of an ongoing article regarding Data Container Changes in Infinispan (Part 2). Just behind this one, an other article covers the JDBC Store Improvements made in Infinispan 9.x. On the Keycloak side of the action, Administer Keycloak server from shell with Admin CLI was released, documenting quite neatly how to managed and automate easily, regular operation - such as creating use or changing a password, with a Keycloak server.
On top of the previous articles, there was two noteworthy articles released last week. The first one discussed how to use Vert.x conjointly to AMQP to Build services and APIs (Vert.x, AMQP). The other one is actually a series of articles, as this is the now regular Hibernate Community Newsletter 2/2017. If you have any interest in a project (or several) from the Hibernate community, this newsletter is going to be a treasure trove for you.
