I’m now officially Talend employee

July 4, 2011 Posted by jbonofre

After 8 years worked at Fimasys, I decided to move last December.

Fimasys is a great company but not purely middleware oriented (it’s a financial software provider). I was receiving offers from quite long time and I decided to make a choice between Talend and Fusesource.

Both companies are great and I know a lot of amazing guys in each.

The choice was horribly difficult 🙁

On Fusesource side, I was very attracted to work with great guys like Guillaume, James, Hiram, Claus, Gert, Lars, Jon, etc, etc, etc.

On the other hand, the Talend Apache team is awesome: Dan, Hadrian, Sergey, Colm, Glen and Christian. I discovered also great guys from Sopera (Dietmar, Renat, etc, etc) and from DI (Cédric, Rémy, Christophe, etc, etc).

The Talend challenge is really impressive and I decided to join them. It was really hard because I have a deep respect for Fusesource and especially Guillaume.

Finally it’s now official: I’m Talend employee 😉

 

Apache Karaf 2.2.2 available

July 4, 2011 Posted by jbonofre

A new Apache Karaf version is available. If it’s mainly a bug fixes release, it includes some small enhancements.

Especially, we added a completer for shell aliases. It means that you add a new command alias in etc/shell.init.script, the TAB key will look for aliases in addition of pure commands.

Another interesting enhancement used in Apache CXF and Apache Camel is that the feature Maven plugin now “embeds” the Karaf core features. It means that it’s no more required to define <repository>mvn:org.apache.karaf.assemblies.features/standard/2.2.2/xml/features</repository> in your features descriptors: it’s the default.

You can take a look on the complete release note.

I’m going to update Karaf related projects (CXF, Camel, ServiceMix, TIF, TSF) and focus on Apache Karaf Cellar 2.2.1 version 😉
