Red Hat Updates Application Services Portfolio


Red Hat has announced updates throughout its portfolio of application services to deliver a more seamless and unified experience for application development, delivery, integration, and automation across hybrid cloud environments.

The modularity of the Red Hat Application Services portfolio contributes to a unified environment for application development, delivery, integration, and automation. The combination of the Quarkus platform with the connectivity capabilities of Apache Camel, the intelligent decisioning of Kogito, API management with Red Hat 3scale API Management, and the power of Red Hat OpenShift enables Java developers to fully embrace cloud-and Kubernetes-native development.

According to Red Hat, the open source Quarkus project offers developers innovative capabilities for building and extending their Java applications in a Kubernetes-native world. The latest release of Quarkus strengthens this foundation with new features for developers, including:

  • Continuous testing for near-instant feedback while coding;
  • A new command-line interface (CLI) that helps simplify common development and deployment tasks;
  • An updated and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI); and
  • Out-of-the-box services that simplify creating and connecting to popular databases, message queues, and more.

Application programming interfaces (APIs) and microservices are key elements of cloud-native applications, and provide the building blocks for developers to create these applications. New features introduced in the latest release of Red Hat 3scale API Management include:

  • Support for a new WebAssembly (WASM) extension that enables communication between Red Hat 3scale API Management and OpenShift Service Mesh, giving customers a powerful combination for integrating, controlling and managing APIs and microservices in a Kubernetes-native environment; and
  • Developers can use a modular approach to configure API management proxies directly with Istio Envoy based service mesh for improved connectivity and control across cloud-native applications.

The latest Red Hat Application Services updates are now generally available.
