Camel / Red Hat Fuse

This article describes how to create and deploy an FIS 2.0 project using the s2i source workflow. It creates a project from scratch and using github repository one can deploy their FIS 2.0 camel and spring-boot based project to an Openshift environment. Below are the steps in the sequence, which should be followed to deploy the application easily.

mkdir spring-boot

cd spring-boot
  • Execute the following to download spring-boot archetype:
mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate   -DarchetypeCatalog=   -DarchetypeGroupId=org.jboss.fuse.fis.archetypes   -DarchetypeArtifactId=spring-boot-camel-xml-archetype   -DarchetypeVersion=2.2.195.redhat-000004
  • In github repo, create a new repository. Let's say we created 'testingAgain'. Copy the repository url.
  • Now create a local git repository and add the remote github url to the local git repo.
git init

git add *

git commit -m "Added spring-boot project"

git remote add origin

git push origin master
  • On Openshift console, click on 'Add to Project'. One can find this on the top panel in the Openshift GUI.
  • In the 'Browse Catalog' search for spring. Select s2i-spring-boot-camel. This quickstart is a simple example of camel and spring-boot.
  • Once selected, we can set below parameters. While other parameters can be left as it is.
Application Name: test-camel-spring-boot

Git Repository URL:

#Git Reference refers to brnach name or tag.

Git Reference: master

test-camel-spring-boot-1-build with status Running.
  • Click on the Pod 'test-camel-spring-boot-1-build'.
  • Go to Logs tab. Scroll at the bottom, it will download artifacts.

Push successful
  • Click on 'Go to overview' on that page.
  • We would see another pod like:
test-camel-spring-boot-1-3k38z in Running phase.

test-camel-spring-boot-1-build in Completed phase.
  • Pod test-camel-spring-boot-1-3k38z is an actual pod. Click on it and go to Logs tab.
  • We should see logs like:
08:16:39.411 [Camel (camel) thread #0 - timer://foo] INFO simple-route - 477

08:16:49.411 [Camel (camel) thread #0 - timer://foo] INFO simple-route - 497

08:16:59.411 [Camel (camel) thread #0 - timer://foo] INFO simple-route - 289

08:17:09.411 [Camel (camel) thread #0 - timer://foo] INFO simple-route - 872

08:17:19.412 [Camel (camel) thread #0 - timer://foo] INFO simple-route - 401
  • Using oc client we can verify with the command:
[cpandey@cpandey karaf-camel]$ oc get pods


test-camel-spring-boot-1-3k38z 1/1 Running 0 3mtest-camel-spring-boot-1-build 0/1 Completed 0  13m
[cpandey@cpandey karaf-camel]$
