Everybody heard the news probably. The first WildFly 9.0.0.Alpha1 release came out Monday. You can download it from the wildfly.org website The biggest changes are that it is built by a new feature provisioning tool which is layered on the now separate core distribution and also contains a new Servlet Distribution (only a 25 MB ZIP) which is based on it.
I gave a brief introduction about the Overlord project family yesterday. Today it's time to test-drive a bit. The API Management sub-project released a 1.0.0.Alpha1 two days ago and introduces the first set of features according to the 18-Month roadmap.

This can happen on many levels. People, processes and of course infrastructure components.

Already the fourth edition of my pod- and screencast crossover. Today it was Red Hatter Stan Lewis (@gashcrumb) who took some time to talk about his work and about the hot web-console which is the new front-end for all things JBoss Fabric8/Fuse. He is a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat and came on board with the Fusesource acquisition end of 2012.
This is another blog the ongoing series about the Red Hat xPaaS solutions, where I am trying to demystify the acronyms a bit and give you more information about the projects and products composed around it. After the initial overview this post focuses on the first aspect of the iPaaS solution: JBoss Data Virtualization.
