“Companies pay too much attention to the cost of doing something. They should worry more about the cost of not doing it.” (Philip Kotler) In the world of IT, there’s an old adage that states: "Months of debugging can save days of reading the documentation." Jokes aside, while documentation is crucial for understanding software libraries,Read more →
Image Builders (Jib, Buildpacks) are an alternative to Dockerfiles and provide standardization out-of-the-box for continuous image creation. They are easy to maintain and allow some parameterization and layering. But don't forget to test them!
KIE Smart Router resilience against network issues needs to be tested in an automated way
Automation in resilience KIE server tests is feasible and reduces pain. Let's focus on the example of deadline notifications after KIE server restart.
When creating an image for an immutable Spring Boot Kie Server application, it is possible to split up the files and folders belonging to the fat-jar into different layers. Main advantages of this approach are: Libraries, code, and resources are grouped into layers based on the likelihood to change between builds. This reduces the imageRead more →
Test automation in complex KIE server setups is crucial. Some tooling and techniques can help to identify possible bugs and verify their fixes: in this first article let's see a practical example with an scenario for EJB Timers on cluster
Elytron will become the one and unified subsystem for authentication and authorization. For easing the transition, a partial migration is offered to link both subsystems, but the full migration is preferred. KIE server is ready to migrate with a few jboss-cli operations.
Testcontainers is a Java library which allows you to interact seamlessly with any application that can be dockerized, making your integration testing much easier (and fun). Let’s see a practical integration sample with Kie Server, the lightweight process and decision engine used within projects like jBPM and Drools. In this article, we are going toRead more →
