Weekly Editorial

2 Posts authored by: dnaro27

Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Editorial where we gather news from our communities and explore developments from our projects.

 

Release Roundup

 

Quarkus 1.3.1.Final is out. This release makes Java 11 the default for new projects. Heads up for all Java 8 users, deprecation is coming in Quarkus 1.4. Read all about it here.

 

Quarkus Tools for Eclipse is also available. Find out how to get Quarkus Tools in your Eclipse IDE.

 

WildFly S2I (Source-to-Image) builder and runtime Docker images for WildFly 19 are released on quay.io. Among the notable changes in this release is the inclusion of JGroups with the default server configuration. Visit the blog post to learn more and try out some clustering examples.

 

Keycloak 9.0.2 has also shipped.

 

All Things Containerized

 

Fernando Lozano's recent article explores the RHEL UBI in-depth and gives an informative look how OCI standards mean that you can keep using the Docker toolset on Mac or Windows systems to build images that run seamlessly with new RHEL 8 container tools such as Podman.

 

Eric Schnabell brings us another excellent tutorial that shows you how to get OpenShift Container Platform running locally with Code Ready Containers on your laptop and then use Red Hat process automation tooling with pre-installed containers.

 

Edson Yanaga delivers a DevNation Tech Talk that focuses on how event-driven architectures help you succeed in distributing data for microservices.

 

JBang Everywhere

 

If you haven't yet taken jbang for a spin, you're missing out. jbang makes Java super easy, compiling and packaging with zero need for pom.xml or build.gradle files, maven or gradle wrappers, or extra directory layers. In his latest post, Max Andersen highlights some very interesting uses for his jbang utility, including pure Java implementations of git and kubectl plugins. It's worth a read.

 

Other Goings On

 

Infinispan have recently explained their new strategy for improving technical accuracy and maintainability with their documentation. Check out the blog post and take a tour of the docs repository.

 

Strimzi introduces support for MirrorMaker 2.0, which brings a more dynamic and automated approach to topic replication between Kafka clusters. Get a detailed look from Paul Mellor over at the Strimzi blog.

 

David Malcolm introduces a static analyzer built into the GCC 10 compiler, which looks like a very promising approach to finding problems with C code at compile-time. Visit David's post to try it out and provide some early feedback.

Welcome to my first ever edition of the JBoss editorial. I'm pretty excited to be sharing news from the JBoss community and look forward to bringing you highlights and latest developments. Let's go!

 

Did someone say MicroProfile?

Eclipse MicroProfile provide specifications for Enterprise Java microservices and this week we bring you news of two recent announcements

 

WildFly 19.0.0.Beta1, which is available since last week, includes implementations of all of the MicroProfile 3.2 specifications. It's an important achievement for the WildFly team and Brian Stansberry provides all the details and shouts out in his MicroProfile 3.2 in WildFly 19.0.0.Beta1 announcement.

 

Quarkus as well recently announced compatibility with MicroProfile 3.2, another milestone for the project right on the heels of the 1.1.0.Final release.

 

Quarkus Tooling and RealWorld Demo

Looking for dedicated Quarkus integration in your IDE? Check out the cleverly titled  on the March of IDEs post Quarkus blog.

 

If you're a fan of the RealWorld specification for fullstack app demos, then have a look at Diego Camara's Quarkus example app.

 

Developer Articles and How To's

Sébastien Blanc shows us how to use ConfigMaps to define properties for Quarkus applications on Kubernetes.

 

William Henry also breaks down Podman and Buildah for Docker users and shows how to migrate, answering lots of technical questions on the way.

 

Evangelist's Corner

JBoss evangelists release new demos and content to help people discover and use the latest version of the JBoss Community projects. Since the last editorial, Eric D. Schabell released an article that explains how to get a fully installed and configured Red Hat Decision Manager on your local machine. Learn how to install Red Hat Decision Maker in 7.5 minutes.
