Kubernetes Java Client

Build Status Client Capabilities Client Support Level

Java client for the kubernetes API.

Client versioning

The Java client uses Semantic Versioning. We increment the major version number whenever we regenerate the client for a new Kubernetes release version (see table below). Whenever we do this there are new APIs added and possibly breaking changes in the generated Kubernetes API Stubs. Whenever you upgrade a major version, be prepared for potential breaking changes.

Installation

To install the Java client library to your local Maven repository, simply execute:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/kubernetes-client/java
cd java
mvn install

Refer to the official documentation for more information.

Maven users

Add this dependency to your project's POM:

<dependency>
    <groupId>io.kubernetes</groupId>
    <artifactId>client-java</artifactId>
    <version>5.0.0</version>
    <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

Gradle users

compile 'io.kubernetes:client-java:5.0.0'

Others

At first generate the JAR by executing:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/kubernetes-client/java
cd java
cd kubernetes
mvn package

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • target/client-java-api-7.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar
  • target/lib/*.jar

Example

We prepared a few examples for common use-cases which are shown below:

  • Configuration:
  • Basics:
    • SimpleExample: Simple minimum example of how to use the client.
    • ProtoExample: Request/receive payloads in protobuf serialization protocol.
    • (5.0.0+) PatchExample: Patch resource objects in various supported patch formats, equal to kubectl patch.
    • FluentExample: Construct arbitrary resource in a fluent builder style.
  • Streaming:
    • WatchExample: Subscribe watch events from certain resources, equal to kubectl get <resource> -w.
    • LogsExample: Fetch logs from running containers, equal to kubectl logs.
    • ExecExample: Establish an "exec" session with running containers, equal to kubectl exec.
    • PortForwardExample: Maps local port to a port on the pod, equal to kubectl port-forward.
    • AttachExample: Attach to a process that is already running inside an existing container, equal to kubectl attach.
    • CopyExample: Copy files and directories to and from containers, equal to kubectl cp.
    • WebSocketExample: Establish an arbitrary web-socket session to certain resources.
  • Advanced:
    • (5.0.0+) InformerExample: Build an informer which list-watches resources and reflects the notifications to a local cache.
    • (5.0.0+) PagerExample: Support Pagination (only for the list request) to ease server-side loads/network congestion.
    • (6.0.0+) ControllerExample: Build a controller reconciling the state of world by list-watching one or multiple resources.
    • (6.0.0+) LeaderElectionExample: Leader election utilities to help implement HA controllers.

        CoreV1Api api = new CoreV1Api();

                client,
                api.listNamespaceCall(null, null, null, null, null, 5, null, null, Boolean.TRUE, null, null),
                new TypeToken<Watch.Response<V1Namespace>>(){}.getType());

        for (Watch.Response<V1Namespace> item : watch) {
            System.out.printf("%s : %s%n", item.type, item.object.getMetadata().getName());
        }
    }
}

mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="io.kubernetes.client.examples.Example"

Compatibility

Key:

  • Exactly the same features / API objects in both java-client and the Kubernetes version.
  • + java-client has features or api objects that may not be present in the Kubernetes cluster, but everything they have in common will work.
  • - The Kubernetes cluster has features the java-client library can't use (additional API objects, etc).

See the CHANGELOG for a detailed description of changes between java-client versions.

Development

Update the generated code.

The code is generated by the swagger-codegen project.

We have built general purpose cross-language tools for generating code, it is hosted in the kubernetes-client/gen repository.

To get started, in a root directory that is not your java client directory, for example your directory layout could be:

${HOME}/
        src/
             gen/
             java/
...

Then to clone the gen repository, you would run:

cd ${HOME}/src
git clone https://github.com/kubernetes-client/gen
export GEN_ROOT=${PWD}

Then to update the client:

cd ${HOME}/src/java
${GEN_ROOT}/gen/openapi/java.sh kubernetes ./settings

This should run through a long-ish build process involving docker and eventually result in a new set of generated code in the kubernetes directory.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
