Chris Swan presents an overview of the Docker journey so far and where it is headed along with its growing ecosystem of tools for orchestration, composition and scaling. This article provides both a business and a technical point of view on Docker and separates the hype from the reality.
Orchestrating activities that extend over very long periods (hours, days, weeks) is a common design issue. Although technically BPM engines are specifically design to ideal with this issue, they do so with standalone processes with corresponding issues arising from callback mechanisms. This article we will show one of the approaches to use JBoss jBPM for solving this problem.
In a new article Boris Lublinsky discusses how the JBoss middleware platform, specifically JBoss ESB and jBPM (JBoss Business Process Management) can be used for building composite service solutions. 1
This article demonstrates how to build and orchestrate highly configurable and extensible yet light-weight embedded process flow using AOP techniques with Spring AOP and Aspect J. 13
In this article, Adrien Louis and Marc Dutoo discuss the differences and relative merits of using orchestration vs. routing in a typical ESB setup, and discuss various implementation options.
In this article, Adrien Louis discusses the pros and cons of two topologies for ESB-based SOAs: A single ESB for the company vs. a system of "departmental" ESBs that are connected to each other. 6
In this article, Boris Lublinsky discusses the main approaches to service composition, both from design and implementation point of view, and outlines the benefits of using orchestration. 8
