YAKC - Yet Another Kubernetes Client
Introduction This example shows how you can access the Kubernetes cluster’s REST API from inside a Pod using YAKC (Yet Another Kubernetes Client), Eclipse JKube and Spring Boot. The first part of the tutorial shows how to create a very simple Spring Boot application with the required YAKC Kubernetes Client dependency (see introductory post for YAKC).
