This post applies to ActiveMQ version 5.9.0 and below. ActiveMQ 5.9.0 is the latest released version at the time of writing this post. It also applies to JBoss A-MQ 6.0 and below.
DZone MVB Nicolas Frankel is working on his latest book, this time writing a book dedicated to integration testing. For now, I spoke with Nicolas to find out more about the book, and some of his opinions on testing
Gradle is gaining more and more popularity as a build system. It combines the power of scripting with the simplicity of conventions. Declarative builds are very straightforward, where customizations do not end up in tons of messy configurations.
Whether or not you write integration tests can be a religious argument: either you believe in them or you don’t. What we even mean by integration tests can lead to an endless semantic argument.
Every week here and in our newsletter, we feature a new developer/blogger from the DZone community to catch up and find out what he or she is working on now and what's coming next. This week we're talking to Nicolas Frankel, IT consultant with 10 years experience in Java and JEE environments.
In the previous part 3, we have seen how ActiveMQ helps distinguish remote consumers from local consumers which helps in determining shorter routes from message producers to consumers. In this part 4, we will look into how to load balance concurrent consumers on remote brokers.
So today on April 1st we released hawtio 1.3.0. Well we are likely not making the same headlines as others news would do on this Aprils fool day. But nevertheless it yet another sign of a great community and project where we release often.
Oracle just announced the arrival of Java 8 – a long-anticipated update which includes the addition of lambda expressions and support for functional programming. Here’s a look at some of the new features and why they are important to engineering at MuleSoft.
As BPM technology has evolved and become more of a mainstream concern, its application has become more pragmatic than visionary, and the simplistic one-size-fits-all BPMS proposition as initially fleshed out by Gartner has come apart at the seams.
In order to effectively use ActiveMQ, it is very important to understand how ActiveMQ manages memory and disk resources to handle non-persistent and persistent messages. ActiveMQ has three key parameters which need to be kept under check.
Without some understanding of the design choices, business value and developer marketing strategies, it can be very difficult to know where to start planning. The API Codex is designed to meet that exact need. We feature articles, videos and books created by industry experts in the field.
To document our API, we used Spring MVC integration for Swagger (a.k.a. swagger-springmvc).
A Mule application which uses the Jboss TX transaction manager needs a persistent Object Store to hold the objects and states of the transactions being processed (further information about different object stores can be found in the following page). By default Mule uses the ShadowNoFileLockStorem, which uses the file system to store the objects.
Apache Camel is the most popular open-source integration library. You can implement complex routing, orchestration, transformation, and mediation with this library. With hundreds of connectors/adapters including those to common enterprise backends, it’s not difficult to see why it’s so popular.
Today we released hawtio 1.2.3 - yay that is a beautify version number ;) 1-2-3 hawtio is ready for download and use. You can find more details about hawtio at the website. Its 100% open source, and licensed using the permissive Apache License. The source code is at gihub.
If you look at the W3C document listing HTTP status codes, you may notice that only a small portion of all possible codes represents the happy path – i.e. 2xx codes. Most other codes are there to let client know that something went wrong with the request and the expected response cannot be returned.
We all know we need to use connection pools where ever we connect to a database. All of the modern drivers using JDBC type 4 support it.
Now that we have understood the basics of ActiveMQ network connector in part 1 and part 2 of this blog series, in this part 3, we will examine how ActiveMQ load balances consumers which connect to a network of brokers.
Mule Studio makes it easy for developers to build hybrid integration applications. In our latest webinar, I’ll walk you through a demo on how to build a complete integration scenario and deploy it on a local machine on-premises, as well as to CloudHub.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Enterprise Integration Zone (Mar. 14 to Mar. 20). This week's topics include Spring Integration with Spring Boot, Java 8's Optional class, WebSockets with Spring 4, 350 API providers, and creating dynamic Mule proxies.
This is more a practical book than a technical book. The author gives a lot of suggestions for developing with ADF in a real project. It's a step-by-step guide for developing your own project with ADF.
In this post I will show a proof-of-concept for a dynamic HTTP proxy implemented using Mule. The proxy forwards HTTP request using the context and relative path parts of the request URL to determine the server and port to which the request is to be forwarded.
Java 8 introduces the Optional class. In a nutshell, instead of returning null, and then checking for null, you return an Optional instance
The Axway API Gateway is often used as a gateway in front of APIs / Web Services. The connection to the API behind the API Gateway often is over SSL. If this connection uses a self-signed certificate (i.e. not VeriSign or another global CA), then how do you configure the trust for this connection?
I am throwing the entire kitchen sink into a small web application that I am developing as part of this post - Spring Boot, Spring Integration, RabbitMQ and finally the topic of the post, the Websocket support in Spring MVC with Spring 4.
