AWS Application Integration: What’s New in August 2023
AWS Application Integration is a suite of services that helps you connect applications, data, and devices across your cloud and on-premises environments. This blog post will highlight some of the new features and enhancements announced in August 2023.
Amazon EventBridge Schema Registry supports OpenAPI 3.0
Amazon EventBridge Schema Registry is a service that lets you discover, create, and manage schemas for events on EventBridge. You can use schemas to validate, transform, and enrich events in your applications. With the latest update, you can now use OpenAPI 3.0 to define schemas for RESTful APIs. OpenAPI 3.0 is a widely adopted standard for describing APIs, and it offers more flexibility and features than the previous versions. You can use OpenAPI 3.0 schemas to generate your APIs’ SDKs, documentation, and mock servers.
Amazon MQ adds support for RabbitMQ 3.9
Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service that supports Apache ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ. RabbitMQ is a popular open-source message broker that supports multiple messaging protocols and features. With the latest update, you can now use RabbitMQ 3.9 on Amazon MQ, which brings several improvements and bug fixes. Some of the notable changes include:
- Improved performance and stability of the Raft-based distributed queue implementation.
- Enhanced observability and monitoring capabilities with Prometheus and Grafana integration.
- New CLI commands and API endpoints for managing policies, parameters, and definitions.
- Support for Erlang/OTP 24 offers better performance, security, and compatibility.
AWS Step Functions Adds Support for Amazon SNS FIFO Topics
AWS Step Functions is a service that lets you coordinate multiple AWS services into workflows using a visual interface or code. Step Functions can orchestrate complex business processes like data processing, machine learning, and microservices. With the latest update, you can now use Amazon SNS FIFO topics as event sources or targets for Step Functions workflows. Amazon SNS FIFO topics are a type of Amazon SNS topic that preserves the order and deduplicates messages. You can use Amazon SNS FIFO topics to ensure your workflows receive and send messages reliably and consistently.
