Welcome to another installment of our JBoss Editorial! As mentioned a few weeks ago, we are still looking for a new (and better) place to host our editorial. We are making good progress on this and we should move soon to a new platform. That being said, let’s move right into today’s editorial!


Evangelist's Corner


As always, our very own Eric D.Schabell has published content regularly in the past weeks, including the following items:


Drools and JBPM

Drools and JBPM are always a rich subject matter and if you happen to delve into these realms, you'll probably be interested in these two parts tutorial on Running an event-driven health management business process through a few scenarios (Part 1) (followed by

Running an event-driven health management business process through end user scenarios (Part 2) ). Another blog also offers feedback on Drools & jBPM: Functional Programming in DMN: it FEELs like recursing my university studies again


On the product shelf


We generally don't mention too much the Red Hat Middleware products associated with the JBoss projects in this editorial (it is a community blog post), but there have been two announcements worth mentioning here in the last weeks. First of all, JBoss EAP 7.3 was released and brings new packaging capabilities (as my team worked a lot of this release and we're quite proud 7.3 is out, I thought I'll mention it). The other announcement is the release of Red Hat Data Grid 8.0 which brings new server architecture, improved REST API, and more.



Here are a few more technical articles for you to explore depending on your taste. The first one covers migrating a Spring Boot microservices application to Quarkus, obviously a very interesting topic for any Java developer. A more practical article follows, discussing deploying projects to Apache Felix, Tomcat, and Karaf in VS Code. Then we would suggest looking into Capture database change data with Debezium Apache Kafka connectors, which will bring you to look at very different considerations. Finally, another article mentioning Quarkus: How to quickly run 100 Camels with Apache Camel, Quarkus and GraalVM.

Releases, releases, releases...
