Using Talend Open ESB in a Production Environment

Hi,

A quick question from someone who looking at options.

 

If we create a new service / API using the Open ESB product can the ESB Runtime still be purchased to host these within a live environment? If not is there a recommended approach to deploying / hosting them to be used in a live environment which can be monitored with alerts if anything fails?

 

Kind Regards,

 

Paul

Yes. If you produce collateral in the Open Source edition and later want to upgrade to the Enterprise edition, you will be able to migrate your code quite easily.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply but I m not convinced I asked the question in the right way.
Basically if I use Open ESB what environment / software do I need to deploy a solution into. i.e. ESB Runtime or is there an open source equivalent?

Both the Open Source and the Enterprise product use Apache Karaf for the ESB Runtime. The only difference is that in the Enterprise edition you get more integrated into the ESB Runtime (Apache Karaf).

For work with community runtime in production, You may need also:

- enable (if not) karaf web-console

- add karaf hawtio plugin for monitoring Java

- add apache decanter with - log collectors and appenders, SLA alarms

- add elasticsearch/logstash/kibana - check old versions for work with runtime

plus of course setup some alarms inside Jobs (Routes)

and may be create few additional Jobs for live ping health of most important Jobs/Routes 

 

There I also in process, I have working projects and configurations, but continue experiments

Re: Using Talend Open ESB in a Production Environment

Hi,

 

I want to use Hawtio to monitor ou ESB runtimes.

 

1-I did a first test on a local runtime (On my PC). I can connect successfully from the webconsole http://localhost:8080/hawtio/jvm/connect with these parameters:

Host: localhost

Port: 8040

Path: jolokia

 

2-Now I want to monitor our server runtimes.

I ran these commandes in Karaf:

feature:repo-add hawtio 1.5.6
feature:install hawtio
 
Then I ran the console on my PC: http://localhost:8080/hawtio/jvm/connect and try to connect with these parameters:

Host: <myservername>

Port: 8040

Path: jolokia

 
But it doesn't work. Hawtio is asking for a login/password. I tried many things (karaf/karaf for instance) but it doesn't work.
 
I can enter any server name (Even a wrong one), I get the same result...
 
Do you manage connect to a remote karaf server through Hawtio ?
 
Regards.

I faced the same issue. Juste use your out-of-the-box Hawtio to connect to remote server

Hi,

 

Thanks for your answer.

 

What does mean "out-of-the-box Hawtio" ?

Hi Eric

 

You can download Hawtio, run its jar file in the JVM completly outside Karaf, then access it locally and parameter it to browse your karaf runtime as well as ActiveMQ is you use it.

Hi Loko,

 

OS server where karaf is runing on is UNIX. I cannot run the jar on it. Am I wrong ?

Yes you're wrong, Unix/Linux can run java and jar files.

That's what Talend do with jobs or even Talend Studio.
