Here Mobility

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 12 Feb, 2019

If you want to go from A to B, you have a number of options. You can go by foot, bike, car or public transport. Of course, there are other modes of transportation like boats and planes but let’s imagine that you want to travel from Amsterdam to Rotterdam. You can go online to see what the possibilities for public transport are, times the trains go, if there might be a bus, taxi, flight or rideshare to get you on your journey. Just go to Google Maps and there you have it. But what if you actually want to get a bus, taxi or rideshare?

WSO2 EI / WSO2 ESB JSON Array Support

Posted by Wouter van Wijngaarden on 7 Feb, 2019

In my previous blog about JSON object support on the WSO2 EI/ WSO2 ESB product, I showed some examples on how the product deals with JSON objects internally. In this blog I want to expand on that subject by showing an example with a JSON array and in addition show how create JSON messages on the product using the XSLT mediator. For this blog I will use an eclipse ESB solution project with the below API setup for the first examples.

Health Checks on WSO2 Products

Posted by Steve Liem on 24 Jan, 2019

For simple health checks directly on a Carbon container, you want to have an interface that exposes just enough information to determine that the environment is healthy. It should also be a lightweight process that has no impact on the load of the system. It should be a secure process that does not expose any sensitive system information that might be of use for potential hack attacks. In this blog I will tell you how you can execute a health check.

IoT deployments: from Sensible to Madness

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 22 Jan, 2019

IoT, the Internet of Things, is a term that you must have heard about these last couple of years. Small sensors that are able to measure something and communicate their findings to a (central) server. To give you an example: the city of Utrecht (The Netherlands) has equipped recycling bins for glass and paper with sensors that will indicate that the bins are full. This does not only allow collection just in time (and therefor could save on cost) it also makes sure that people are able to throw away their recyclables and not leave them next to the bin (as some people unfortunately do). A very sensible use case for IoT. But not all of them make sense in my opinion!

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.
