  • Events, Flows and Long-Running Services: A Modern Approach to Workflow Automation

    Recent discussions around the microservice architectural style has promoted the idea that “to effectively decouple your services you have to create an event-driven-architecture”. Although events can decrease coupling, we must avoid the mistakes of traditional SOA: centralised control should to be avoided, and workflow engines must be less painful to use and operate.

  • Virtual Panel: Microservices Interaction and Governance Model - Orchestration v Choreography

    The recent trend in application architectures is to transition from monolithic applications to a microservices model. This transition without a good service interaction model will most likely result in chaos and a service landscape that's hard to govern and maintain. InfoQ spoke with domain experts on this topic and compiled their responses in this virtual panel article

  • The Container Landscape: Docker Alternatives, Orchestration, and Implications for Microservices

    The orchestration of containers is key for success, and various technologies are competing for market share. This article examines the current tooling and how this relates to deploying microservices. A key takeaway is that developers should create business logic of their microservices using a vendor -and platform- agnostic approach.

  • Simple TOSCA Orchestration for Docker

    TOSCA (Topology Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications), governed by the OASIS organization, is a platform for defining a standard container orchestration specification that is portable across various cloud environments and container providers.

  • Docker: Present and Future

    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.

  • No Callbacks Required: StratifiedJS Returns Sequential Programming to Javascript

    StratifiedJS is a superset of Javascript that adds concurrency constructs and makes callback hell a thing of the past. How? InfoQ talked to Alexander Fritze, of Onilabs, to find out.

  • Orchestrating Long Running Activities with JBoss / JBPM

    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.

  • Using JBoss ESB and JBPM for Implementing VMS Solutions

    In a new article, Boris Lublinsky discusses how the JBoss middleware platform, specifically JBoss ESB and jBPM (JBoss Business Process Management) can be used to integrate both internal and third-party services to deliver composite services and content in customer-specific forms, including Web services, WAP, portals, and more.

  • Workflow Orchestration Using Spring AOP and AspectJ

    This article demonstrates how to build and orchestrate highly configurable and extensible yet light-weight embedded process flow using Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) techniques. The current examples are based on Spring AOP and Aspect J, however other AOP techniques could be used to accomplish the same results.

  • Choosing between Routing and Orchestration in an ESB

    In this article, Adrien Louis and Marc Dutoo discuss the differences and relative merits of using orchestration vs. routing in a typical ESB setup. They discuss various approaches to connecting services, from low level ones like customized routing, to high-level ones using business oriented approaches like workflow and orchestration, and conclude that there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

  • ESB Topology Alternatives

    In this article, Adrien Louis discusses the pros and cons of two topology alternatives for ESB-based SOAs: A single ESB for the company vs. a system of "departmental" ESBs that are connected to each other. Adrien describes how the alternatives affect issues such as administration, business monitoring, governance, reliability, and orchestration.

  • Service Composition

    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. Topics covered include hierarchical vs. conversational composition, composition topologies, and the pros and cons of difference implementation approaches.
