Developing with Fabric8

## Developer workflow

If you tend to use an IDE for working with Java and things like Apache Camel and Apache CXF here's how to get started using your IDE or Maven with fabric8.

There's also a more in depth screencast if you prefer to watch that first.

To start create an archetype

We've got lots of quickstarts which we've converted into Maven Archetypes.

So if you have installed Maven, type the following:

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.2:generate -Dfilter=io.fabric8:

This will list all the various archetypes. Pick one that suits your fancy, e.g. io.fabric8.archetypes:springboot-camel-archetype mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.2:generate -Dfilter=io.fabric8:spring-boot-camel-archetype

for the Camel Spring Boot Quickstart.

Then enter these values:

groupId:    cool
artifactId: mydemo
version:    1.0.0.SNAPSHOT
package:    cool

And confirm with 'Y'.

Now change directory in to the project

cd mydemo

build the java quickstart, generate the Kubernetes resources, build the docker image and deploy it to Kubernetes

mvn fabric8:run

or if not working on minikube and deploying to a cluster

mvn fabric8:run fabri8:push

Now check your pods and wait for your cool demo pod to start

kubectl get pods -w
