When you run a containerized application on a container orchestration platform like Kubernetes, Open Shift or with a serverless framework like Knative or Code Engine or on other platforms, it is helpful to pass endpoints to other applications to the containerized application by using environment variables. When the container will be restarted, these variables can be provided to the container and no adjustment in the source code is necessary. You can use configmaps or in Code Engine simple the environment variable itself.
In this blog post I want to highlight the news, that our tutorial Get your Java Microservice up and running is now available on IBM Developer.
In this blog post I want to point out the topic of the open sourced Reactive Cloud Native Starter example with Java backend Microservices and a Vue.js frontend web application.
The objective of this blog post is to share with you an extract of a "simple" example project on GitHub I created to get started with: How to access a Java Microservice using the Open Source Identity and Access Management with Keycloak and JavaWebToken (JWT). In that project I want to ... ... secure... Continue Reading →
In this blog post I want to point out that I just created a 15 min YouTube video related to the great Hands-on workshop: Reactive Endpoints with Quarkus on OpenShift. In this video you can watch and follow the steps of the exercise 3 "Invoke Endpoints reactively". Niklas wrote a great blog post about the... Continue Reading →
In this blog post I want to point out that I just created a 5 min YouTube video related to the great Hands-on workshop: Reactive Endpoints with Quarkus on OpenShift. In that short video I show the setup of the example application to show reactive programming. The image below shows the major architecture of the... Continue Reading →
This blog post has the focus on: how to develop a JUnit test for the Authors microservice from the Cloud Native Starter example and run both the Authors microservice and the JUnit test on OpenLiberty in the development mode. That blog post hasn't the objective to be a blueprint or a 'how to guide' for... Continue Reading →
The Cloud Native Starter project now contains the new great topic, the development of Reactive Microservices with Java, quarkus, MicroProfile and Vue.js as front-end. The Reactive example implementation runs on minikube, local OpenShift and on IBM Cloud Kubernetes. Here are the instructions on GitHub. But what does reactive mean? Here is an extract of the...

Today, just a very short note. You should be aware of opentracinqZipkin when you use MicroProfile OpenTracing with OpenLiberty, because I noticed with the update to MicroProfile 3.0 I had a problem with usr:opentracinqZipkin-0.31. I created an issue on OpenLiberty. "MicroProfile 2.1 includes mpOpenTracing-1.2. MicroProfile 3.0 includes mpOpenTracing-1.3. Please make sure you are using the... Continue Reading →
