Introduction Kubernetes v1.19.0 was just released. Amongst the many new features and improvements, the graduation of Ingress API to V1 (#1453) stands out. Despite users have widely adopted Ingress resources, and that Kubernetes introduced the beta feature back in 2015 (v1.1), it hasn’t been until the new v1.19 release that Ingress has gone GA. An Ingress is “An API object that manages external access to the services in a cluster, typically HTTP”. In other words, Ingresses are the way to publicly expose your Kubernetes managed Services to the outer world. In this post, I will show you how to use […]

Kubernetes 1.19 Ingress API from Java using YAKC


YAKC - Yet Another Kubernetes Client
Introduction In this example, I will show you how to access the Kubernetes cluster’s REST API from inside a Pod using YAKC (Yet Another Kubernetes Client), Eclipse JKube and Spring Boot. In the first part of the tutorial I’ll show how to create a very simple Spring Boot application with the required YAKC Kubernetes Client dependency (see the introductory post for YAKC). Next you’ll see how to quickly deploy the application into a Kubernetes cluster. I will also show you how to perform requests to the Pod’s exposed REST endpoints to retrieve information from the cluster. Example application The first […]

YAKC - Yet Another Kubernetes Client
Introduction As some of you may know, I’m a proud member of the team maintaining Fabric8 Kubernetes Client (for a while now). Fabric8 is one of the most popular Java clients for Kubernetes and OpenShift. Fabric8 Kubernetes Client is great because it allows to perform most of the kubectl supported operations from Java with a very neat and fluent API. However, accessing low-level REST API operations or specific API versions is hard because some of these decisions are taken for you (for now). This is the main reason that drove me to implement Yet Another Kubernetes Client (YAKC) as a […]
