It's that time of year again and the Red Hat Summit conference in San Francisco is rapidly approaching. Expect to see a flurry of product and project releases, over the coming weeks, as the teams prepare to announce their latest and greatest offerings.
If you're planning on attending Red Hat Summit, you can read here, to get a preview of the sessions covering modern application development.
In the first part of this series James Falkner explores the Istio project and how Red Hat is actively involved, working to integrate it into Kubernetes and OpenShift. This integration brings the benefits of a service mesh to our customers and the wider communities involved.
In this post Don Schenck talks about testing for failures in your distributed application. Testing how your application responds to network unreliability is traditionally very hard to do. However, in this post Don shows how this can be done with ease by injecting faults into your application running in an Istio service mesh.
In the fourth post of Clement Escoffier's “Introduction to Eclipse Vert.x.” series, he shows how you can use JDBC in an Eclipse Vert.x application using the asynchronous API provided by the vertx-jdbc-client. But before diving into JDBC and other SQL subtleties, Clement provides a primer on Vert.x Futures.
In a few weeks, on 24 April 2018, Eric Schabell will be visiting the Portland, Oregon Java User Group (known as PJUG). Here Eric will deliver a workshop where attendees will get started with containers, Cloud and some examples so that you have your own private PaaS Cloud on your laptop. You'll be given a private Cloud in minutes that turns your laptop into a container platform where you then can explore a multitude of example projects from such domains as retail, travel, finance and more. You can read more and sign up for the event here.
You can also catch Eric at DevConf.us 2018. In this post Eric previews the talks and workshops he'll be giving.
In this post Michal Petrov gives a status update on the RichFaces community. Red Hat stopped contributing to the RichFaces codebase almost two years ago, however there are still many people using the technology.
