Configuring Open Liberty datasources in cloud native environments (Video)

monday, january 21, 2019

I’ve recorded a video how to effectively configure datasource from Open Liberty instances that run in Docker containers or Kubernetes clusters.

I’ll show best practices how to use Open Liberty configuration features that enable to keep the application-specific configuration minimal and to extract credentials. We’ll see how to inject the credentials into both plain Docker containers and Kubernetes pods.

By using these approaches, you can keep your application-specific runtime configuration minimal and leverage Docker’s copy-on-write file system.

You’ll find the recording on IBM Developer and the example project on GitHub. Also have a look at previous blog posts how to override configuration in Open Liberty and how to configure datasource via Kubernetes secrets.
