The Best VMware vFabric Stories of 2012 & What’s In Store for 2013

As this year comes to a close, it’s time to be reflective of what happened in the past and start planning for a new year. The vFabric team has had some major achievements this year, introducing several new products to the market including the innovative vFabric Application Director, the widely anticipated Project Serengeti to enable rapid cloud deployments for Hadoop, and a new tool to the vFabric Suite users called vFabric Administration Server (VAS).  We announced a new VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace to help further accelerate application development with a professionally moderated library of enterprise grade, ready-to-use application components that can be run on any cloud.

Next year is going to be even bigger with the Pivotal Initiative where several of the products covered on this blog will be following the new venture. This is still in the planning stages, so we will be expecting to share with you the plans for our products alongside the formal communications from each of the companies involved. (Sorry — no extra information is available right now)

One thing that we are going to be doing in early 2013 is to move the conversation of how you manage applications to be with the conversations of how you manage virtual infrastructure. To that end, we will be moving all topics of Application Performance Manager, AppInsight, Application Director, Hyperic, and Spring Insight to the VMware Management Blog as of January 1st. To make sure you keep up with the management topics, please be sure to follow us @vmwareappmgmt and @vmwaremgmt.

In the meantime, we’d like to reshare with you the top 20 stories we had for 2012, and invite you to comment here on what stories you would like to see us cover on either blog for 2013.

Considered a minor release, this update fulfills VMware’s desire to update the 13 different application components that comprise the suite every six months.  The improvements across the products for this version focus on improving standardization and consistency across products, an important maintenance effort as several of the products are relatively new to the vFabric product portfolio.

  4. Packaging/RPMs
  5. Security Audits

How to integrate SQLFire into your Maven project

Sqlf-logoJust a quick post to address a potential issue regarding integration of the latest SQLFire release (1.0.2) into your Maven project. You may not know this, but, the VMware GemStone team maintains its own Maven repository.

For the latest versions of SQLFire and GemFire dependencies simply integrate the GemStone repository into your pom.xml:

<repository>
   <id>gemstone</id>
   <name>Release bundles for SQLFire and GemFire</name>
   <url>http://dist.gemstone.com.s3.amazonaws.com/maven/release</url>
</repository>

and define the necessary dependency, in this case SQLFire:

<dependency>
   <groupId>com.vmware.sqlfire</groupId>
   <artifactId>sqlfireclient</artifactId>
   <version>{com.vmware.sqlfireclient.version}</version>
</dependency>

Hope this helps.
