PLUS, Java EE 6 support comes to OpenShift PaaS, and new milestone for Orion.

RabbitMQ Comes to Cloud Foundry

The Cloud Foundry platform has added RabbitMQ as a messaging service. RabbitMQ
on Cloud Foundry is a cloud-based message broker, that is used in
integrating distinct software systems, by sending and receiving
data between systems, which can either be components of the same
app, or part of distinct apps.

Cloud Foundry users can use the standard vmc commands to create,
bind, unbind, clone, and delete RabbitMQ services, and can
implement a full set of cloud messaging patterns. These patterns
include routing, to enable message consumers to only subscribe to a
subset of the messages, and topics for routing based on a range of
criteria. Remote Procedure Call, and work queues that distribute
time-consuming tasks among multiple workers, are also

The RabbitMQ service is available as a free public beta on
www.CloudFoundry.com, and is implemented using RabbitMQ server

Java EE 6 Support Comes to OpenShift PaaS

Red Hat have announced that their OpenShift PaaS now supports Java Enterprise Edition
. This support is based on JBoss Application Server 7 and,
according to the announcement, this integration makes OpenShift
the first PaaS in the industry to deliver Java EE 6.

“While developers and enterprises have long been interested in
the time to market advantages offered by PaaS platforms, the
difficulty of migrating existing applications to incompatible
frameworks has slowed adoption,” said Stephen O’Grady, principal
analyst and co-founder of RedMonk. “With EE6 available by
integrating the JBoss application server technology, Red Hat’s
OpenShift platform is aimed at allowing enterprises to transition
their existing Java EE applications and skills to the cloud with
zero friction.”
