Red Hat working on complex event processing software

The capability will be featured in JBoss Enterprise Business Rules Management System 5.1, due next year

Red Hat will preview next week a CEP (complex event processing) capability being added to the company's open source business rules management software.

Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise BRMS (Business Rules Management System) 5.1 will feature a technology preview of CEP, with the general release of the capability due in the next release of BRMS, likely in 2011. "What CEP lets you do is look for patterns within the business event and take action on that," such as fraud detection or product shipping patterns, said Pierre Fricke, director of product line management for middleware at Red Hat, on Tuesday.

The JBoss CEP would compete with technologies from companies like IBM and Tibco. Red Hat believes it has advantages over rivals in that it integrates BRMS and CEP in the same product, boasts high performance, and offers the benefits of an open source community around the software. "We're looking for early adopters" of the CEP software so it can be polished before the final release, Fricke said.

BRMS 5.1 also adds more options for Java Virtual Machine and server deployments and improved usability. "We've done things like made the UI a lot more friendly and configurable with Google Web Toolkit," Fricke said. Also, the software now can be deployed on the Apache Tomcat servlet container.

Simplified developer tools are featured with version 5.1. Real-time collaboration is enabled between business analysts and developers. Also, rules services can be more quickly published into a SOA.

Annual subscriptions to JBoss Enterprise BRMS 5.1 start at $20,000 for 16 cores.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
