With something things happening lately, we have (again) missed an editorial two weeks ago! All our apology about that, but this one will catch you up if you have missed anything. No surprise, only a few weeks after its releases, Quarkus, and its beloved friend, GraalVM, are still the center of the attention! (as it should be!!!)
Quarkus and GraalVM
With its recent releases, Quarkus is certainly a trending item! Especially when we see how far the project can go with coupled with GraalVM. And this potential is certainly leading to some exciting experiments like: Adventures in GraalVM: polyglot Camel (k) native routes with Quarkus, or Towards a Polyglot Drools on GraalVM (with Bonus Tech-Lead Prank)!
Quarkus being a very new and innovative context of execution for an application, it is to be expected for people to try to migrate their own application. If you plan to do so, this article on Migrating Java applications to Quarkus: Lessons learned is a “must-read”! After that, you may want to take a look at this one From zero to Quarkus and Knative: The easy way. With those two articles, you should be set to go even further in your exploration of Quarkus!
Note: If you happen to be able to read french, note that I will also release an article on Quarkus in next month’s issue of GNU/Linux Magazine France.

Still relating to rules, especially, in this case, drools, we also mentioned above, in the section about Quarkus, this quite cool article Drools & jBPM: drools.js: Towards a Polyglot Drools on GraalVM (with Bonus Tech-Lead Prank) ! We’ve repeated here so to be sure you don’t miss it !
As always, our own Eric D. Schabell has been quite prolific, especially has he has joined several conferences:

Last, but certainly not the least, don’t forget to catch up with the Infinispan project, if you have the opportunity, on the Infinispan on tour, March-April 2019!
This editorial is already quite a mouthful, but maybe you can stomach a bit more? If so, take a look the following entries:
- Operator 0.2.1 out with DNS ping and expanded customizations
- Keycloak Community Newsletter #1
- The next integration evolution - blockchain ~ Bilgin Ibryam (@bibryam)
