A few weeks ago, our first Red Hat JBoss Fuse release was completed. As with previous releases, this comes with a few examples that show you how to build e.g. a content-based routers or a JAX-RS web service. These examples are all very simple and focused on single technology.

In real life however, things often get quite a bit more complicated than what these examples are showing you. Based on their experience with customers, people like Charles Mouillard, Scott Cranton, Jakub Korab and Scott England-Sullivan have been creating a set of more elaborate example projects on GitHub.

FuseByExample is the name of the GitHub organisation where all these projects live. If you go there, you'll find a dozen examples that show you how to implement things like transactions using Aries' JTA support,using JPA for database access, using web sockets to build more dynamic web front-ends, ...

All of these examples have been updated to work with the new Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.0 release so if you're taking a look at this new release, be sure to check out the stuff in FuseByExample as well to get a better idea of what is possible with this technology. And also, these are GitHub projects so feel free to create pull requests for improvements, bug fixes, ... We love contributions ;)
