WSO2 EI / WSO2 ESB JSON Object support

Posted by Wouter van Wijngaarden on 17 Jan, 2019

In the WSO2 EI and WSO2 ESB products you might run into a situation that you either want to receive or send JSON messages. As I’ve recently done some work relating to this functionality I wanted to write a blog about this subject. For the examples in this blog I will use the following flow:

 

Inside the WSO2 EI/ESB product’s message context, everything is handled as XML which has an impact on the way JSON is processed. Luckily there are a few easy ways to use the JSON support within the bus. In this blog, I will cover how the product handles JSON objects.

Digital Transformation: Threat or Opportunity?

Posted by Vinay Babu Yella on 15 Jan, 2019

Digital Transformation is for a company the difference between winning and losing. Companies that were once great are now extinct. For example: Toys "R" Us was once a successful toys store chain, but now out of business after Amazon shook up the retail market with online e-commerce offering customers with greater selection, lower price, and better customer experience. In some cases, much younger companies (for example: Uber, Airbnb, Stripe) are emerging as major disruptors in their industry, using their digital platforms that prove to be a threat to their competitors. Over the past twenty years, it has been proven that the industry disruptors where the first to embrace Digital Transformation, and those other companies that followed were successful by surviving the competition.

Micro is the new Enterprise

It’s not that hard to think of a state-of-the-art architecture, designed to continuously evolve with changing demands, changing expectations, and changing technologies. You just need to disentangle your software into microservices, make them event-driven, run them in auto-scaling and auto-healing containers on top of a software defined network, put API management in place and fully automate your deployments.

How to read properties in WSO2 BPS/WSO2 BPMN

Posted by Dusan Dević on 3 Jan, 2019

If you had the opportunity to work with WSO2 BPS or WSO2 BPMN, you’re familiar with the concept of variables. Just like in other programming languages, variable is in charge to hold some data and the system can make calculations and decisions based on such values. In this article I’ll show you how to read properties from the config file and to include them in your BPMN process definition. This can be very handy as, once you want to change something, it’s not necessary to recompile the code, redeploy the .bar file, even you don’t have to restart the product.
