Red Hat Open Source Tool Summary

On this page you will find an overview of the eight Red Hat tools and our development platform that are available to use during the hackathon. 

In this hackathon we offer a very rich range of enterprise-class and very popular middleware tools. Like everything at Red Hat, all of these tools are open source. The tools cover various areas of capabilities which can be broadly summarized into:

  • Red Hat Application Environments
  • Red Hat Integration, and
  • Red Hat Process Automation.

In total we offer eight Red Hat middleware tools. Here is a list of these tools and below you will find more details and links on how to get started with each:

  1. Red Hat Application Runtimes for application development
  2. Red Hat Fuse for integration 
  3. Red Hat AMQ for messaging
  4. Red Hat 3scale API Management
  5. Red Hat Process Automation Manager
  6. Red Hat Decision Manager
  7. Red Hat DataGrid for distributed caching
  8. Red Hat Single Sign-on (SSO) for application security

In addition for the hackathon you’ll get access to our managed development platform called “AppDev”.  The AppDev Managed Platform is based on market leading container platform OpenShift, plus our middleware stack of tools.  Here you can find more details about how to get started on this platform to develop for the hackathon. 

Every team gets access to the platform for their project via one shared account. Please fill in the following form to request this account and we’ll provision it for you (provisioning time is around 5 business days):

Remember, in addition to using the OpenShift Container platform which requires using a Red Hat application runtime, all eligible submissions must use at least one of the other tools indicated above. There are 25 judging points available based on the extent to which the Red Hat middleware technologies are used.

The diagram below indicates how the various tools are related to each other and what functionality they cover.
