Welcome, everyone to month two of 2018! There have been some exciting things in the world during this past week. We’re excited to bring to you our round-up of the week in Red Hat Middleware!
The first announcement we have isn’t really middleware related, but it is certainly part of the larger Red Hat family. Many of you may have seen the announcement a few days ago about CoreOS and Red Hat. Yes, it is true, Red Hat is acquiring CoreOS. We believe this will further Red Hat’s stance and leadership within the Kubernetes community. For additional Q&A outside the official announcement, linked above, there is an FAQ posted over on the Red Hat blog.
Let’s move along and take a look at releases within Middleware:
Infinispan 9.1.5.Final was released back on Tuesday, this was mainly a bug fix release.
Developer Studio 11.2.0.GA and JBoss Tools 4.5.2.Final released, also on Tuesday built for Eclipse 4.7.2 Oxygen. Check out the linked blog post for full information
DevSuite 2.2 and CDK 3.3. Tuesday was a full day of releases! In addition to tooling, if you’re using DevSuite or CDK, there are new versions for you as well.
Teiid 10.1 released addressing 72 issues
The Infinispan team is getting the word out about executing code in the grid. This allows you to really put that Inifinispan/JDG cluster to work and do more than provide fast caching, which of course is nothing to scoff about. If you have data in that grid, use Infinispan to reason about and execute those questions in the grid!
The Hibernate Newsletter came out yesterday. Read about their community over on the blog post. You’ll find information about releases, Stack Overflow questions, forum posts and other blog posts from their community.
In keeping with the current theme of data, the Teiid team would like people to know about Teiid Spring Boot. This will allow you to use Teiid without the need of setting up a server if you’re using Spring Boot. This solution will be a great addition to your microservices toolbox!
Lastly for data, if you are familiar with Microsoft SQL Server and OpenShift, you can now use them together! Over on the Developer Blog, Takayoshi Tanaka blogged about using SQL Server on OpenShift. It runs SQL Server on RHEL within OpenShift. Head on over and learn how to get started!
Our own Christian Posta, evaluates Envoy and Istio circuit breaking with Netflix Hystrix over on his blog. Circuit breaking is a great tool to use if you’re talking to services within your application. You never know when something is going to go down, and your application breaking because of some dependency down the line isn’t always acceptable. Hystrix is often thought of as "the standard" in doing circuit breakers. It’s a great primer and dive into two different solutions!
Yesterday was another DevNation Live session. This session focused on Istio canaries and k8s (Kubernetes). If you missed the live feed and would like to catch up, feel free to watch it on YouTube!
Thanks for staying with us for another week!
