Init Container Build Pattern: Knative build with plain old Kubernetes deployment

Init Container Build Pattern: Knative build with plain old Kubernetes deployment

With Kubernetes evolving at supersonic speed and seeing a lot of adoption in the enterprise world, the developer community is now looking for solutions to common Kubernetes problems, such as patterns. In this article, I will explore a new Kubernetes pattern using Init Containers.

Let’s start with the use case that gave birth to this problem: Quarkus—Supersonic and Subatomic Java—has excited the Java developer community with its amazing speed and all new native build artifact for Java applications. As one of those excited developers, I want to quickly build and deploy a Quarkus application on to Kubernetes.

Dynamically Creating Java Keystores in OpenShift

Introduction

With a simple annotation to a service, you can dynamically create certificates in OpenShift.

Certificates created this way are in PEM (base64-encoded certificates) format and cannot be directly consumed by Java applications, which need certificates to be stored in Java KeyStores.

In this post, we are going to show a simple approach to enable Java applications to benefit from certificates dynamically created by OpenShift.
