Today there are 2 products, and that will continue
- JBoss Fuse
- JBoss Fuse Service Works
It is on the roadmap for future releases to allow JBoss Fuse Service Works to run on top of the Karaf based container that JBoss Fuse currently uses. And as well to allow JBoss Fuse to run on the EAP container that JBoss Fuse Service Works currently run on top of.
So in other words in the future, the container is a free choice whether its
- OSGi based using Apache Karaf
- EAP based
So when this happens, you can run SY application in the JBoss Fuse container. Or vice-versa. Going you the total choice.
JBoss Fuse Service Works allows to use AMQ also. I think you can do that today, or its coming in the next release. And JBoss Fuse works with any JMS broker, so you can also use HornetMQ today with JBoss Fuse. So in other words either today or in the future you can also choose which JMS Broker you want to use.
And just a note about fabric8. Fabric8 is the upstream open source community project for Fuse Fabric.
This is where new development of fuse fabric happens in the open community. So if you are looking into using fabric or want to keep an eye on it, then I suggest to keep an eye on that community.
Thank you Claus - really appreciate you answer.
And the product roadmap sounds very exciting.
Is it version 2 of Switchyard, that support for deploying to Karaf will be completed?
Yeah I think its SY 2 that will supports Karaf/OSGi.
Though you can ask on the JBoss Fuse Service Works user forum about the version number, to be sure.
