Application Integration based on Open Source (FUSE)

Last week i attended a seminar on “Application Integration based on Open Source (FUSE) ” organized by Progress Software and Flusso.

The FUSE brand is based on a set of leading projects from the Apache Software Foundation.
They include products like FUSE ESB (based on Apache ServiceMix),
FUSE Message Broker (based on Apache ActiveMQ),
FUSE Services Framework (based on Apache CXF)
and FUSE Mediation Router (based on Apache Camel).

Besides these products they deliver a plugin for Eclipse for implementing patterns (FUSE Integration Designer).
For managing and monitoring the FUSE based infrastructures you can make use of the FUSE HQ, which is part of the support subscription.

On the blog of one of the FUSE employees i just read they also provide online free virtual trainingen for Apache ServiceMix and Camel.

The agenda for the day

  • Enterprise Messaging with ActiveMQ by Rob Davies
  • OpenWire, Stomp or AMQP by Frank Staijen
  • Introduction to OSGi by Marcel Offermans
  • ServiceMix 4: Integrating OSGi and JBI by Gert Vanthienen
  • Apache Foundation history by Dirk-Willem van Gulik
  • Enterprise Integration Patterns with Apache Camel by James Strachan

Some keywords for me to look at :

  • OpenWire
  • Stomp
  • Camel Rest
  • cachedb
  • osgi/apache felix
  • apache ace
  • apache service mix/apache felix karaf/service mix nmr/service mix jbi
  • apache camel/bam support/camel mock

It was a nice day with some good introductions on the different products. FUSE delivers a nice stack of products for supporting integration solutions. Besides the stacks like Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle/SUN Open ESB/Glassfish ESB, FUSE got good potentional to deliver strenghts on integrations projects. Besides widely used open source software, support from a big community they will give their own support to the customer.

And a nice quote by one of the speakers
The latest is the greatest, as long as i don’t need to demo it!

We’ve just released FUSE Integration Designer 1.2 – with some big changes from the preview releases that have gone before. Download details at


Did you attend any of the recent OpenESB webinars? They’ll give you a good perspective of how you would work with OpenESB.



Well i almost followed/read every tutorial on openesb, so i know what it can do. Some ex collleagues use it for customers, and they’re positive about it too. I just need some more pratical hands on experience on a project 🙂
