A Message broker has very different characteristics and use cases than a data streaming platform like Apache Kafka. Data integration, processing, governance, and security must be reliable and scalable across the business process. This blog post explores the capabilities of message brokers, the relation to the JMS standard, trade-offs compared to data streaming with Apache Kafka, and typical integration and migration scenarios.
Comparing JMS-based message queue (MQ) infrastructures and Apache Kafka-based data streaming is a widespread topic. Unfortunately, the battle is an apple-to-orange comparison that often includes misinformation and FUD from vendors. This blog post explores the differences, trade-offs, and architectures of JMS message brokers and Kafka deployments. Learn how to choose between JMS brokers like IBM MQ or RabbitMQ and open-source Kafka or serverless cloud services like Confluent Cloud.
This post explores why Apache Kafka is the new black for integration projects, how Kafka fits into the discussion around cloud-native iPaaS solutions, and why event streaming is a new software category. A concrete real-world example shows the difference between event streaming and traditional integration platforms respectively iPaaS.
Read why enterprises leverage the open source ecosystem of Apache Kafka for successful integration of different legacy and modern applications instead of ESB, ETL or MQ.
I really like the integration framework Apache Camel and I also like Scala a lot. This article shows the basics of this combination. It is NO introduction to Apache Camel or Scala. I created a Git project to use it as simple startup for Camel-Scala-Maven projects using just the basic Camel concepts and only a few complex Scala features (i.e. very „Java-friendly“).
In the last few days, I had to evaluate the product SOAtest (Parasoft). SOAtest is an Eclipse-based testing tool, which supports most important technologies and vendors to test your Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) technically.
I was at the Herbstcampus 2010 in Nuremberg, that is a four-day IT conference. The main topics consist of Java, JEE, .NET, Agile Development and SOA. Although, prominent speakers are missing, many very good and interesting sessions were available. Here you can find more information: Herbstcampus. In the following, I want to mention some more information about a few of the sessions I visited, and interesting facts that I noted.
Today, I visited the one-day conference “DOAG SIG Java”. The main subject was the Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6). I presented about applicability and limits of Java Server Faces 2.0 (JSF 2.0).
