This week sees our annual conference, Red Hat Summit, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center with many of the core development teams in attendance. If you have been fortunate enough to attend the conference then we hope you have managed to meet with many of the developers, attended many interesting presentations and learned a great deal about the projects and products within our communities. Videos from the conference are already turning up on line via our youtube playlist, subscribe to receive notifications when new videos are uploaded.
One of the big announcements coming from Red Hat Summit covered the release of OpenShift.io, an end-to-end development environment for creating and deploying hybrid cloud services. Along with the announcement of the release we have a wealth of articles covering
- a typical development experience you may experience
- the power of developing within the Cloud and
- increasing confidence through the use of analytics
- increasing value through the use of Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment
- 7 freaking awesome things about OpenShift.io

Try It Now
Have you ever wanted to try out some of the Red Hat products but did not have time to download, install and configure them? If this is you then you are exactly the person we would like to provide feedback on new Beta functionality we are trialling, working with Codenvy to support the deployment of a JBoss EAP 7 instance running within a browser-based IDE. The beta launches Eclipse Che IDE, JBoss EAP 7 and the kitchensink quickstart thus allowing you to edit, build and debug applications from within the comfort of your browser.
Evolving Business Rules from your Processes
Business processes often benefit from rules for example using conditional events, sequence flows or executing business rules however they suffer from having the lifecycle of the long running processes coupled to the lifecycle of the shorter running rulesets, until now that is. With the introduction of a new Business Rule Task and Remote Business Rule Task it is now possible to decouple the rules being executed from the process, allowing the rules to evolve independently of the process.
Deploying and Debugging NodeJS Applications on OpenShift
In the second article in his series Jean-François Maury takes us through the process of deploying and debugging a NodeJS application using Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. Jean-François covers all steps from creation of the OpenShift project, a new NodeJS application, deploying that application, modifying and finally debugging of the application. What more could you need to get started?
JBoss DataGrid on OpenShift
With the release of Red Hat Container Development Kit 3.0 Beta and Minishift, deploying a JBoss DataGrid client-server application to OpenShift has never been easier. With a few simple steps Francesco Marchioni takes us from an initial deployment of the CDK, through the creation of a new project to the deployment of JBoss DataGrid and a client application demonstrating how to access the cache.
WildFly gets a Public CI
With thanks from JetBrains, who kindly donated an open source license for TeamCity, the WildFly team now have a public CI system for running integration tests on WildFly, WildFly Core, Undertow and many other related projects and ensures that PRs are tested before being merged to keep the master branch stable.
The latest version of Hibernate News is now out bringing new articles from the Hibernate Community. Within the newsletter you will find articles covering the use and manipulation of proxy objects within Hibernate, how to merge incoming and existing association collections, making use of the Integrator SPI to access the underlying database metadata, how to correctly implement equals and hashCode and many more.
Writing a Book using Continuous Integration
It may sound like a strange use for CI but why should writing a book be any different from developing code? There are many benefits to developing a book using CI as Clément ably argues based on his experience of developing a mini-book about Eclipse Vert.x.
- The WildFly Swarm team released WildFly Swarm 2017.5.0.
