[Question] Consuming From another Operator #50

Describe the problem:

The problem is, I have two

@Operator(forKind = ServiceA.class, prefix = "")


@Operator(forKind = ServiceB.class, prefix = "")

From Service A onAdd(ServiceA serviceA) I want get check all the instances of ServiceB.
It feels to me that then I need to register manually a Fabric8 Kube APIs watch on a Custom Resource, which push me to do all the manual handling instead of reusing the ServiceB operator.

Steps to reproduce:

Observed Results:

  • What happened? This could be a description, log output, etc.

Expected Results:

It will be great if the AbstractOperator provide a client for fetching those resources. By a Client I mean:

private NonNamespaceOperation<ServiceA, ServiceAList, DoneableServiceA, Resource<ServiceA, DoneableServiceA>> serviceACRDClient;

If this exists.. maybe some pointers to the docs would help

do I get it right that you want to be notified in onAdd(A a) when Bs are being "CRUDed"? Or you just need a way to read all the Bs from that onAdd(A a) method, because there is some 1:n relationship between A and B?

For the latter use-case the AbstractOperator.getDesiredSet() could work. However, I like your suggestion to expose that crd client to provide even more flexibility. Would that be something you would like to implement and send PR?

@Jiri-Kremser thanks for the response and yes... I was looking for that exact use case "you just need a way to read all the Bs from that onAdd(A a) method, because there is some 1:n relationship between A and B?"

It will be great to add Spring Boot support for auto configs.. so I can auto wire one Operator into another and then do List as = operatorA.getResources();

I can create a PR.. but the main problem that I see is the leaking of the Fabric8 types to the consume. I like the way that you guys abstracted all the Doneable things from the Fabric8 client.. I would like to keep it that way..
