This week, uncharacteristically, has had few releases, but a number of blog posts! Great news for our readers. Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial!
Three releases happened this past week:
Each of these releases contains a number of bug fixes and features. Hibernate 5.2.15.Final and Hibernate Validator 6.0.8.Final are both drop-in replacements for the previous versions. The update to Debezium should also be a drop in replacement, but blog post doesn’t specifically call it out.
The blogs this week are based on three main categories:
The Inifinispan Team would like to introduce you all to the HotSwig project. Read more about it at http://blog.infinispan.org/2018/03/a-swig-based-framework-to-build-hotrod.html. HotSwig allows you to build a Hotrod client prototype based on SWIG. This is a great project if you want to use Hotrod with a language which doesn’t have its own dedicated Hotrod client.
Galder Zamarreño has some help for those of you using Infinispan in Docker on a Mac. It can be difficult to access Inifinspan due to a known issue with the internal IP address not being accessible externally. If you’ve fought with this issue, be sure to see the workaround proposed at http://blog.infinispan.org/2018/03/accessing-infinispan-inside-docker-for.html.
HTTP is very well used and well-known protocol today. Less well known and used is HTTP/2. In his blog post, Sebastian Łaskawiec tackles getting started with Inifinspan and HTTP/2. Read http://blog.infinispan.org/2018/03/rest-with-http2.html if you’re interested.
Vinay Bhalerao is starting a series about 3Scale and Identity Management. In this first post, Vinay introduces the use case and some basic details. Head over to the Red Hat Developers blog post for the whole article: https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2018/03/06/redhat-3scale-identity-management/
Antoine Sabot-Durand over on the Red Hat Developers blog introduces you to the Eclipse MicroProfile Fault Tolerance specification and subsequent implementation in Wildfly Swarm. You may be familiar with Hystrix or Failsafe. The specification provides you with a standard API to use and stay loosely coupled to the third party libraries. It’s great to see some standardization in this area!
If you haven’t heard of Istio, or are curious to learn more, read Don Schenck’s blog post introducing Istio. Don does a great job doing a quick introduction and high-level overview of Istio and service mesh.
Jeff Mesnil expands on how the MicroProfile 1.2 release can be used by Java developers writing microservices on OpenShift. https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2018/03/05/cloud-native-microprofile-config-healthcheck-openshift/ is decently in-depth and gives you a great starting place to leverage all the latest and greatest from MicroProfile 1.2
Eric Schabell recently launched his new book, Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM! He blogged about it over at http://www.schabell.org/2018/03/book-launced-effective-business-process-management-with-jboss-bpm.html. It will be a great addition for anyone getting started or looking for some more information about Business Process Management!
Wildfly 12 introduced some CLI tools for keystore manipulation. This is great news for anyone tired of trying to do all of that by hand. Our very own Farah Juma recently blogged about the new capabilities over on her blog: https://developer.jboss.org/people/fjuma/blog/2018/03/02/manipulating-keystores-using-the-cli-in-wildfly-12.
To finish off our week, many of us at Red Hat and also out in the community, are gearing up for Red Hat Summit 2018! Mike Guerrette gives us the rundown on a number of excellent talks and speakers over on the Red Hat Developer Blog: https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2018/03/07/red-hat-summit-2018-focus-modern-app-development/. There are so many good things happening at Red Hat Summit this year! We’re all looking forward to seeing you there!
Thanks again for coming back to another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial!
