It’s Official: MicroProfile Is Now Eclipse MicroProfile

MicroProfile is a community project with the mission of optimizing Enterprise Java for a microservices architecture.  In a short period of time, MicroProfile has reached three important milestones:

  1. June 27, 2016: Red Hat, IBM, Tomitribe, Payara and the London Java Community announced MicroProfile at DevNation.
  2. September 19, 2016: MicroProfile 1.0 was released at JavaOne 2016 with 5 implementations (and a 6th planned). The SouJava community joined to support the effort and Hammock was added as a implementation.
  3. December 14, 2016: The Eclipse Foundation Board approved the MicroProfile proposal, meaning that Eclipse MicroProfile is now an Eclipse incubator project. Mike Milinkovich, Eclipse Foundation Executive Director,  informed the community shortly after the vote.

The community is having active discussions on process (project evolution) and microservice APIs like application configuration, monitoring, health check, messaging, circuit breakers, and more.  Some discussions are even backed by real (proof of concept) code! The MicroProfile community is currently planning its next release. Feel free to join the discussion and help define the future of Enterprise Java microservices!

Announcing: Red Hat Single Sign-On 7.1 Beta Is Available

We are excited to announce beta availability of Red Hat Single Sign-On 7.1 (RH-SSO). RH-SSO is a standards-based, out-of-the-box authentication, web single sign-on, and authorization service, which mediates between your enterprise user directory or third-party identity provider for identity information and your applications via standards-based tokens.

Beta documentation and code downloads are available in the Customer Portal. RPM packages are available for Linux systems through Red Hat Subscription Management.

Webinar Now: In-Memory Computing and Real-Time Analytics

In-memory data grids provide a distributed network (or “grid”) of nodes that work as an elastic data store. This is an approach to distributed computing which can work as a foundation for systems which require rapid scale, responsiveness, and high loads, like Internet of Things and mobile applications.

In-memory computing (like any distributed architecture) can be very complex, and understanding how to map the functionality of your existing infrastructure to a distributed computing infrastructure is critical.

So we have a webinar for that! “Real-time advantages of an in-memory data platform” with Cojan van Ballegooijen and Thomas Qvarnstrom (both JBoss technology evangelist at Red Hat) will be covering:

  • An introduction to in-memory computing
  • In-memory data grid use cases
  • How data access can affect business decision making, application responsiveness, and customer / revenue opportunities

Details

  • Tuesday, Dec. 6
  • 11a.m. Eastern time (US)
  • Presenters: Cojan van Ballegooijen and Thomas Qvarnstrom

Seamless developer portal authentication with 3scale and RHSSO

3scale rhsso

About four months ago, Red Hat announced that it was acquiring 3scale. (Almost two years ago, Red Hat and 3scale announced a joint solution relationship for 3scale’s API Management Platform and Red Hat’s Middleware portfolio.) As the acquisition settles in, 3scale is already starting to integrate with middleware products, which will strengthen developers’ abilities to design and implement API initiatives and services.

This first point of integration is between the 3scale Management Platform and Red Hat Single Sign-On: more specifically, for the developer portal authentication.

How to integrate business logic in processes with JBoss BPM

In June 2016 the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP) started for the book Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM.

What is a MEAP?

The Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM MEAP gives you full access to read chapters as they are written, get the finished eBook as soon as it’s ready, and receive the paper book long before it’s in bookstores.

You can also interact with the author, that’s me, on the forums to provided feedback as the book is being written. So come on over and get started today with Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM.

The way the MEAP works is that every month or so Manning puts a new chapter online. As of this week chapter 5 is available and those already in the MEAP will have access to start reading the chapter.

This is a large chapter and it is one of the harder topics to confine to a single chapter. I do expect to split this chapter up in the future so that you have the basics and then more advanced topics regarding learning to effectively implement your business logic with JBoss BPM.

To give you an idea of what’s available so far:

You can read this excerpt online before you decide, but I look forward to hearing from you on the content and stay tuned for more.
