JBoss World 2012 conference coverage

The staff will be at JBoss World 2012, writing highlights, interviews, and reports on important news and advice from sessions and experts at this year's event.

The collaborative Red Hat Summit / JBoss World 2012 conference this June in Boston will focus on a wide variety of topics, all under the same theme: transformation. Sessions will address new ways to structure the enterprise, with an emphasis on the latest in open source tools, middleware, cloud technologies, application integration and more. The staff will cover highlights from the best sessions, interview some of the brightest minds in open source applications, and report on any and all news that breaks throughout the conference.

RedHat buys FuseSource to gain added application integration skills and tools
Open source software leader RedHat said it will purchase integration and messaging middleware provider FuseSource. With the move, RedHat furthers its efforts to fill out significant parts of the application integration software stack, as it looks to compete with enterprise software mainstays like IBM and Oracle.

SwitchYard project scheduled to replace JBoss ESB
Red Hat's JBoss ESB is giving way to SwitchYard, an ESB that better supports SOA efforts with familiar tools such as Drools, BPMN and Camel integration routes. The new ESB also benefits from standardization via the service component architecture (SCA) standards. SwitchYard is slated to replace JBoss ESB in RedHat's upcoming JBoss SOA Platform 6.

Red Hat unveils the JBoss Way, drives toward mobile, cloud and big data
Ahead of their collaborative conference scheduled for June 26-29, JBoss and Red Hat made a series of product announcements.

Quotes, insights and anecdotes from the 2012 Red Hat Summit
The open source virtualization community was out in full-force for the 2012 Red Hat Summit and JBoss World. Take a look at some favorite quotes from

Can Red Hat’s low-price bundles lure new cloud and virtualization customers? reports on Red Hat's move to bundle its CloudForms, OpenShift and Enterprise Virtualization products to encourage adoption. IT pros said it will take more than slashing prices to leave Microsoft or VMware.

Rules, events and processes meet
Integrated process, rules and event capabilities are something of a holy grail for today’s high-powered corporations. Such capabilities are being pursued in open source software. Take, for example, the new release of JBoss Enterprise BRMS 5.3, as discussed at the JBoss World event by Ken Johnson, director of product management. The new offering adds Apache Camel integration, improved data services and additional messaging support.
