BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FuseSource Corp., experts in open source integration and messaging, today unveiled the Fuse™ IDE 2.0 product, an enhanced version of the Eclipse-based tooling the company introduced in April, 2011. The new version builds on a visual environment that enables developers to “drop and drag” the integration and mediation components needed to connect systems. The Fuse IDE 2.0 tooling further simplifies and accelerates the application integration and development process with new debugging functionality that enables developers to test and deploy integration routes faster than ever before.
“Enterprise developers and architects know all too well how frustrating it can be to find the source of problems when integrating complex applications,” said James Strachan, software fellow at FuseSource, creator of the programming language Groovy and a co-founder of Apache projects ActiveMQ, Camel and ServiceMix. “The Fuse IDE 2.0 product is a game changer that makes it easy to visually test, debug and edit routes for maximum performance and is yet another example of the work we are doing at FuseSource to enable enterprises to more effectively use the very best integration and messaging technology available – open source solutions from the Apache Software Foundation.”
FuseSource offers subscriptions for enterprise-friendly distributions of Apache Software Foundation integration and messaging projects Apache ServiceMix, Camel, ActiveMQ and CXF. The Fuse IDE tooling makes it possible to visually connect, and now debug, software components – functionality that significantly decreases the time and effort required to complete the development process. The IDE can be used in conjunction with the Apache ServiceMix, Apache Camel, Apache ActiveMQ, Fuse ESB®, Fuse Mediation Router®, and Fuse Message Broker® products.
The Fuse IDE product uses JMX to build a visual representation of integration projects. Version 1.0 came pre-loaded with enterprise integration patterns (EIPs) developed by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf. It allowed developers to see the containers deployed, gauge each component’s performance, add and delete JMS destinations, and start and stop routes. With the Fuse IDE 2.0 tooling, developers can now drop messages into the endpoints for these same routes and gauge their progress – ensuring not only that the message traverses the route properly, but also that the contents are adequately conveyed and intact.
The Fuse IDE 2.0 product includes numerous debugging features – all of which enable developers to see, inspect, test and optimize integration and messaging routes more effectively. They include:
- Endpoint browsing makes it easy to see and inspect the available messages on endpoints or JMS queues;
- Message drag and drop from an endpoint or JMS queue to any Camel endpoint or JMS destination makes it easy to quickly try out integration scenarios;
- A JMX explorer is tailored to view Fuse integration applications;
- A Graphical viewer displays all brokers, queues, topics and Camel endpoints and routes available in a remote JVM; and
- Route tracing allows users to step through each version of each message to see how message headers and bodies change as they move through routes.
“Most organizations today are at a crossroads – one that requires them not only to consider new platforms, such as the cloud, but also to integrate applications to an extent considered impossible even a few years ago,” said Larry Alston, president of FuseSource. “Not surprisingly, integration and messaging technology has quietly emerged to be of crucial importance to enterprises of all kinds, including those that can no longer justify the cost or unneeded breadth of proprietary solutions. The Fuse IDE 2.0 tooling reflects our commitment to provide enterprises with everything they need to apply open source alternatives that are not only viable, but proven and mature in their use among many of the world’s best known companies and government agencies.”
