Deploying Java Microservices to Kubernetes on IBM Cloud
This workshop demonstrates how to build a microservice with Java and how to deploy it to Kubernetes on the IBM Cloud.
The microservice is kept as simple as possible, so that it can be used as a starting point for other microservices. The microservice has been developed with Java EE and Eclipse MicroProfile.

This workshop has four labs. It should take between 60 and 90 minutues to complete the workshop.
- Installing prerequisites: lab
- Running the Java microservice locally: lab
- Understanding the Java implementation: lab
- Deploying to Kubernetes: lab
The first lab describes how to install all required prerequisites. In the easiest case this is only Docker Desktop and an image with all other tools.
Lab 2 and 3 describe how to develop a microservice with Java EE and Eclipse MicroProfile.
The last labs ways to deploy applications to Kubernetes on IBM Cloud.
