JBoss xPaaS: aPaaS, iPaaS, bpmPaaS, dvPaaS, mPaaS on OpenShift

JBoss xPaaS is a set of services that provide the powerful capabilities of JBoss Middleware as cloud based services on OpenShift.

Generally PaaS refers to aPaaS or Application Platform as a Service or ePaaS or Enterprise Platform as a Service. This means making an application server, such as Red Hat JBoss EAP, available in the cloud. This has the usual advantages:

  • No need to install the application server on your local machine. You need a running insance of JBoss EAP, spin it in the cloud. You need multiple instances, spin all of them in the cloud.
  • No provisioning, procurement, installation, configuring, etc of the app server.
  • No tech support required to maintain your hardware, operating system, application server, etc.
  • Capital expenditure is significantly reduced although operational expenditure may increase slightly but this more than outweighs the benefits that come along with it.
  • Integration with popular IDEs is prevalent.

OpenShift has offered aPaaS for Java EE 6 with Red Hat JBoss EAP/JBoss AS and Java EE 7 with WildFly for 2+ years now.

In addition to JBoss EAP, JBoss provides a rich set of middleware services for building highly complex and sophisticated applications, all working seamlessly together. Some of these are:

  • JBoss Fuse is an open source ESB with capabilities based on Apache Camel, Apache CXF, Apache ActiveMQ, Apache Karaf and Fabric8 in a single integrated distribution.
  • JBoss BPM  is an open-source workflow engine that can execute business processes described in BPMN 2.0. It enables enterprise business and IT users to document, simulate, manage, automate and monitor business processes and policies.
  • JBoss Data Virtualization is complete data provisioning, federation, integration and management solution. It connect access data from multiple, heterogeneous data sources (connect), easily create reusable, business-friendly logical data models and views by combining and transforming data (compose), and make unified data easily consumable through open standard interfaces (consume).
  • AeroGear provides flexible and extensible libraries to simplify mobile development across platforms and cut common repetitive infrastructure tasks.

JBoss xPaaS provides a developer preview of all of these services on OpenShift.

    Dear Mr. Arun Gupta,
    I wrote to Twitter, but no feedback came(I’m a very little some-/nobody).
    If some support, and some blogwriter don’t leave everybody write to his/her twitter, but direct tweet can go we small-mens have a chance to leave comment.(Of course some dender can be blocked,) but no one can write without feedback leave tweet on the “gurus” site. Only a messege NOT for everybody.

    Apologies if I missed responding to you on twitter. I’ve been traveling like all over the world in the past few weeks and so might have missed it.

    I’m not exactly sure what help are you looking for ? I don’t work for Oracle anymore but happy to help making the connections.

    What is your wordpress site ? Does it have content on any JBoss technologies ?
