Get your Java Microservice up and running!

In this blog post I want to highlight the hands-on workshop “Get your Java Microservice up and running!“, now available in GitBook . That workshop demonstrates how to build a Microservice with Java and how to deploy the Microservice Kubernetes on the IBM Cloud. The Microservice in this workshop is kept as simple as possible, so that it can be used as a starting point for other Microservices. The Microservice has been developed with Java EE, OpenLiberty and Eclipse MicroProfile.

The workshop is a part of the open source project Cloud Native Starter, which contains sample code that demonstrates how to get started with cloud-native applications and Microservice based architectures.
The Workshop has a related badge called Cloud Native Starter Level 1. This badge is available at Acclaim. In the related quiz you can verify your knowledge you achieved in the workshop.

The gif below show some major steps in the hands-on workshop. You will develop locally a Java Microservice and deploy that Microservice to a free Kubernetes Cluster on IBM Cloud.

I hope this was useful for you and let’s see what’s next?

Create one Java Microservice with OpenLiberty and MicroProfile – made for beginners

Today I created a YouTube video, where I developed one Microservice. The level of content of that video is for beginners. The video was “live” recorded and I made some minimal editing and the video takes 18 min.
The recoding is related to Java Microservices with MicroProfile and OpenLiberty in Visual Studio Code . The source code is available in the open sourced Cloud Native Starter GitHub project.

Maybe you are interested, how did I setup the IDE and the Project? … here are the basics.
