It’s been some time since I last talked with you about business logic engines and using them in application development cloud architectures. At that time, I showcased running JBoss BRMS in a container on Red Hat OpenShift. This gives you the cloud experience, one that’s portable across private and public clouds, but on your own local laptop using Red Hat Container Development Kit.
The world continues to move forward, a new product has been released which replaced JBoss BRMS with the Red Hat Decision Manager, so now I want to provide a way for you to install this on OpenShift, in the same easy to use demo format.

In this blog post, we’ll set up Microsoft SQL Server on Red Hat OpenShift. We’ll use SQL Server to store data for a simple ASP.NET Core application running in a container deployed on OpenShift that manages a list of contacts. When we have that set up, we’ll use SQL Operation Studio to connect to the server running on OpenShift from our developer machine.

Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) provides a single-node Red Hat OpenShift cluster designed to assist with containerized application development. This environment is like a production OpenShift environment, but it is designed to work on a single user’s computer. For this purpose, CDK runs Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform in a virtual machine.
Follow these steps to install CDK 3.4 on Fedora 28:
- Set up the virtualization environment.
- Install and configure CDK.
- Start CDK.
Below are details for performing these steps.

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about two seemingly different products: Red Hat OpenShift and Microsoft Visual Studio Code (VSCode). Thanks to the help of Red Hat, the Java language is now supported inside of VSCode development environment. As Java is a first class citizen in Red Hat OpenShift, we will see how it is possible to debug your Java code running inside containers on OpenShift (thanks to Red Hat Container Development Kit) from within the VSCode IDE running on your desktop.

If you’re a Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) or upstream Minishift user, you would have been affected by the unavailability of nip.io. When you create a route for an application running in OpenShift (provided by Minishift) it uses nip.io for routing to the Minishift VM IP address. As a result, it is impossible to access the route created with nip.io suffix.
