Ever wondered how to create, build, deploy new Spring Boot microservices on Kubernetes What if you had integrated tooling in whatever IDE you used (IntelliJ, Eclipse, NetBeans, CLI, web, whatever) that can bootstrap a Spring Boot microservice app for you. What if you could easily build a docker image out of it and deploy to Kubernetes or OpenShift?

With the awesome work in the Fabric8.io community, you now can.

Here are 4 demos that might be interesting to you:

  • IDE based development
  • CI/CD based development (this is spring boot made easy!)
  • Hystrix/Dashboards in Kubernetes
  • Zipkin

Take a look at this demo for using your IDE to create a Spring Boot microservice and run it on Kubernetes (complete with spring-cloud-kubernetes integration for config-management, et. al.):

Take a look at this demo if you just want a single, one-stop-shop for creating your Spring Boot app, check it into Git, attach it to a complex CI/CD pipeline (based on Jenkins Pipelines) and get you off and running QUICKLY:
