About the Event

Over the past few months with we have been working through examples using Minishift and OpenShift. This workshop picks up with OpenShift by walking through deploying a Java Microservice in OpenShift on IBM Cloud. It can often be a challenge to figure out the right place to start with microservice deployments — especially with porting legacy code. The microservice you will create in this workshop is kept as simple as possible so that it can be used as a starting point from which you can build in your future projects.

In the workshop we’ll be using Java EE and Eclipse MicroProfile to build our microservice. We’ll cover setting up our environment, different methods of deploying our microservice — from source to image (S2I) to Dockerfiles and binaries, understanding our Java implementation (Maven, Open Liberty, MicroProfile, and more), and deploying existing Docker images.

Unlike the previous events, this is not a beginner level workshop. Some Java experience is recommended for this workshop and there are a few things you’ll need to have installed before you arrive.
