Learn how to use Telepresence to build a Kubernetes development workflow with a Java Microservice.
Many organizations adopt cloud native development practices with the dream of shipping features faster. Kubernetes has become the de facto container orchestration platform for building cloud native applications and although it provides great opportunities for development teams to move faster, the learning curve can be steep and the burden often falls on application developers who have to learn new processes and tools.
For larger enterprises, Kubernetes and cloud architectures present a critical challenge compared to monolithic legacy applications. As Kubernetes applications evolve into complex microservice architectures, the development environments also become more complex as every microservice adds additional dependencies. These services quickly start to need more resources than are available in your typical local development environment.
For Java developers this challenge is magnified as Java services are often more resource intensive than services written in other languages. If you can’t run your application on your local machine, how do you develop quickly?
In this tutorial, we’ll set up a development environment for Kubernetes and make a change to a Java microservice. Normally to develop locally and integrate with other services in a remote cluster, we would have to wait for a container to build, a push to the registry, and a deploy in order to see the effect of our code change. Instead, we’ll use Telepresence to see the results of our change instantly.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
What is OpenJDK? OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE).
Running Java Microservices in Kubernetes. Microservices tied together with RabbitMQ and Couchbase. The services are reliant on RabbitMQ and Couchbase. I’m going to make the decision to run them inside Kubernetes, making this article more about running things in Kubernetes, than the intricacy and infinite possibilities of running them stand-alone.
What Is Kubernetes and How Does It Relate to Docker? Learn more about the ins and outs of container orchestrator Kubernetes and how it fits in with Docker in a microservices application.
