Agile integration workshop updated to OpenShift Container Platform 3.6

Agile integration in hands-on workshop.
This last summer I posted an overview of the workshops available online for free.

They included middleware workshops showing you how to leverage business rules with JBoss BRMS, developing process applications with JBoss BPM Suite and a new look at application development in the Cloud.

They all get you hands-on with the various technologies, provide online browser-based instructions you can follow anywhere at your own pace. They take you from zero to fully completed solutions and are meant to give a solid feel of what using these open technologies can do in a short timeframe.

The latest Cloud focused workshop was based on OpenShift Container Platform 3.5 and with the new release of version 3.6 it's time to update this workshop.

Agile integration in the Cloud

This workshop brings together a more complex environment with multiple services, multiple open technologies, containers, middleware solutions and demonstrates how agile integration can provide interesting results with some of the existing IT investments previously made by an organization.

In showcasing application development in the Cloud with technologies like containers, Java, business rules, services, container platforms, and agile integration,  you're given a real hands-on experience.

You're immersed in the role of lead developer of the Destinasia travel discount project to set up the development environment as a local private Cloud to validate container-based application services deployments and agile integration solutions.

Once it's set up, you're going to be validating the agile integration services using end-to-end testing.

Tasks include installing a private Cloud based on OpenShift Container Platform (OCP), JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS), several containerized web services and testing the solution using a REST client. 

Infrastructure automation with service deployments
as ansible-playbooks.
Many of these tasks are completed using infrastructure automation tooling provided by Ansible playbooks, allowing you to automate service deployments in to various container-based environments on your private Cloud.

You'll need a laptop with minimum of 16GB of memory and Internet access for downloading some of the requirements.

All this has been updated to showcase the latest OpenShift Container Platform, version 3.6, so get started today!
