Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Editorial, our regular tour through the JBoss Communities in search of news and developments from the community projects.


Quarkus Tools for Visual Studio Code


Quarkus Tools for Visual Studio Code 1.3.0 has now been released on the VS Code Marketplace, bringing with it many new features accompanying the evolution of Quarkus.  David provides a summary of the major improvements in this release as well as a demo video which covers the features presented in his article.


Camel and Camel K


Claus has written an update to his first blog discussing the optimisations which they are making in the Camel 3.1 release, providing a status update on progress as they drive towards fewer object allocations, method invocations and improved performance.


Aurélien has written an article describing the first iteration of Apache Camel K integration within Eclipse Che 7.6.0.  The article covers how to set up the Che instance, create a new workspace and deploy a Camel K integration within the Che environment.


Deploying Camel K integrations in a lightweight manner can be supported through the support of standalone Java files describing the integration, however this comes with the downside that existing IDEs will not provide complete support out of the box.  There are already a number of solutions to this problem albeit without any intuitive configuration.  Red Hat's Tooling for Apache Camel K offers a new solution to this problem with support for the Java language now being included.


Keycloak and JWT Tokens


Muhammed has written a great article demonstrating how easy Keycloak can be used as to obtain JWT tokens through a login process.  Muhammed begins with Keycloak configuration for users and clients before demonstrating client side login and retrieval of the JWT token.


Decision Manager and Process Automation Manager


Eric has revamped his installer scripts to support the latest versions of Decision Manager and Process Automation Manager, setting up local environments for both environments in three easy steps; download, unzip and run the init scripts to get started!!


Guilherme has also announced the KIE Decision Tooling blog for those who want to find out more about the team building web editors to support business decisions, their first post discussing the new code completion feature in the DMN editor.
