VMware performs full integration testing on each component in a vFabric Suite release.
Key integration points:
vFabric Hyperic plug-ins are provided for each vFabric Suite 5.3 component. From a single management console, you can remotely monitor and manage all vFabric Suite components and applications, installed on multiple computers.
User interfaces implement consistent LDAP integration for authentication in vFabric EM4J (vSphere console), Spring Insight, vFabric RabbitMQ (Admin UI), and vFabric Hyperic.
A common API provides a consistent product interaction model. All products implement consistent REST and JSON API behavior.
Application Director services are available for all versions of vFabric components included in vFabric Suite 5.3. Optimized for vFabric runtime components, vFabric Application Director is a cloud-enabled application provisioning solution that accelerates and automates the configuration and deployment of multi-tier applications.
Spring Insight Operations provides automatic instrumentation of Spring applications running on tc Server, exposing application performance from both general and fine-grained perspectives.
Hyperic- Spring Insight integration enables you to move from Hyperic to Insight, in the same application context, to diagnose the underlying problem. See tc Server Plug-In for Easier Management and Monitoring.
vFabric GemFire includes an HTTP session management module for tc Server that provide fast, scalable, and reliable session replication without requiring application changes.
A sample application, Spring Trader, demonstrates how products in vFabric Suite work together.
