Building My Odroid-C2 Docker Cloud Part 3 – Build and Test Drive

The journey so far

My last article documented how I built Docker 1.12.0 from source on my Odroid-C2. Docker 1.12 has swarm mode ie, clustering built in. In this article, I am assembling my 5 Odroid-C2 single board computers into a cluster and test-driving the cluster with simple swarm mode commands.  This is to make sure that Docker 1.12 is working before getting into more advanced swarm mode features and executing a more realistic workload on the cluster in Part 4.

Building My Odroid-C2 Docker Cloud Part 2 – Building Docker 1.12.0 (with Swarm Mode)

Recap

In my previous article, I documented my search for a stable Linux to run my Docker cloud on. The next thing for me to do is to select the version of Docker to use. I am in a dilemma in which I want to use the latest Docker 1.12 with inbuilt swarm mode instead of having to build my own cluster using additional packages such as Consul, Zookeeper, etc. but the version I got using apt-get is version 1.10. There is an update but it is still only 1.11. Since clustering (swarm mode) is in-built in 1.12, there is no point pursuing a dead end in Docker 1.11. Looking around the Internet, I could not find any pre-built Docker 1.12 package for Odroid-C2 anywhere. Reluctant as I was, I had no choice but to build my own Docker 1.12 for my Odroid-C2 from source. As I was new to this, I expected issues and confirmed that Murphy’s Law still rules. This article documents my attempt to build Docker 1.12.0 on my Odroid-C2. Continue reading Building My Odroid-C2 Docker Cloud Part 2 – Building Docker 1.12.0 (with Swarm Mode)

Making JBoss Fuse, Data Virtualisation and BPMS Work Together – Part 2

Recap

In the previous installment, I outlined the use case or business scenario we are implementing using the 3 JBoss middleware products. In this installment, I am going to describe the Fuse to Business-as-a-service (Business rules application on the Realtime Decision Server) integration which validates the XML data and the Fuse to BPMS integration which kicks off a business process instance for a mortgage application as well as the Fuse to JBoss Data Virtualisation integration.
