Camel
Introduction Eclipse JKube 1.0.0 GA will be released on September 9, 2020. As I mentioned in previous posts, JKube is the successor of the deprecated Fabric8 Maven Plugin (FMP), and as such, our main goal right now is to migrate the current user-base to the new project. Aligned with this strategy, we started to create Pull Requests on those repositories that are currently using FMP in order to replace the deprecated dependency. In this article, I’ll describe how to run the updated Apache Camel example (now using JKube) for Cassandra running on Kubernetes, and its expected behavior. This blog post […]
