Fabric8 Documentation

Fabric8 Maven Plugin

The fabric8 maven plugin makes it easy to work with Docker and Kubernetes or OpenShift from inside your existing Maven project.

Version 3.x

If you are starting a new project we highly recommend using the new 3.x version of the fabric8-maven-plugin which has the following features:

  • much simpler to use!
  • can detect most common Java apps and just do the right thing OOTB
  • configure via maven XML or by writing optional partial kubernetes YAML files in src/main/fabric8
  • pluggable generators and enrichers for different kinds of apps (e.g. to auto detect Spring Boot, executable jars, WARs, Karaf etc).

See the fabric8 maven plugin 3.x documentation for more details!
