With the latest release of JBoss Enterprise BRMS 5.3.1 we have been given
the chance to deploy it on JBoss EAP 6, the lightning fast product that will
change our development lives forever. I could not pass up a chance to
update my existing demo projects and here you will find the results.
The new project setup deploys JBoss BRMS 5.3.1 deployable ee6 wars into the
JBoss EAP 6 application platform. The project has been updated completely to
facilitate this install. You just need to get a copy of the project, provide
copies of the products as described in the README files, and run the
provided init.sh script.
A target directory will be created, installing JBoss EAP 6.0.1, deploying
JBoss BRMS 5.3.1 components, copying over configuration and security setting
through the support/* files, and you are ready to rumble!
Once you have the ... (more)
The original Home Mortgage Demo project started out with Red Hat JBoss SOA
Platform (SOA-P) and Red Hat JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS) to
integrate rules, services, ESB, and BPEL orchestration to pre-qualify home
loan requests. In later versions we took this demo project forward with the
more recent versions of both JBoss SOA-P and JBoss BRMS, but the final step
was to leverage the existing components, such as the decision services and
the BPEL orchestration services.
Part I – introduction and project setup

Last October I published a post that identified the features that both JBoss
Data Grid and Oracle Coherence provide (link). My goal was to establish a
baseline for the features that a data grid should provide. It was not to
state that one data grid was better than the other. Little did I know an
Oracle employee would respond by attacking Red Hat, its engineers, and
It is fear? Is it hostility? I don’t know.
I have engaged in discussions with competitors before. Roman and I engaged in
a competitive discussion in response to one of my posts comparing IBM
WebSphere and JBo... (more)
2013 middleware predictions by Red Hat's Craig Muzilla. This post originally
appeared on Dec. 18, 2012.
Last year, I offered my thoughts on trends and developments that the market
would see in 2012. At that time, I felt that we were looking at a continued
emphasis on cloud, while mobile and backend integration technologies would
rise in prominence within enterprise IT. I think the industry made progress
in all three areas: analysts indicate huge adoption of mobile technologies as
a substitute for what would have typically been a laptop or desktop computer;
at Red Hat we saw an u... (more)
Big Data in Theory
What is it? It’s big data. Right?
I’m not sure if I like the term Big Data. I think it’s right up there
with the term Cloud.
I do, however, like the framework created by Doug Laney: Volume, Velocity,
and Variety. It’s the de facto description of Big Data, and it predates the
Big Data phenomenon. That, and I like both alliteration and the KISS
principle. Who doesn’t?
Here is my, albeit short, interpretation of the 3Vs.
Volume – More data.
Velocity – Data (in), faster. Information (out), faster.
Variety – More data sources and / or formats.
What about the Flying V... (more)
