Kubernetes

Since Camel 2.17

The Kubernetes components integrate your application with Kubernetes standalone or on top of Openshift.

The camel-kubernetes consists of 13 components:

In OpenShift, also:

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-kubernetes</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

Usage

Producer examples

Here we show some examples of producer using camel-kubernetes.

Create a pod

from("direct:createPod")
    .toF("kubernetes-pods://%s?oauthToken=%s&operation=createPod", host, authToken);

By using the KubernetesConstants.KUBERNETES_POD_SPEC header you can specify your PodSpec and pass it to this operation.

Delete a pod

from("direct:createPod")
    .toF("kubernetes-pods://%s?oauthToken=%s&operation=deletePod", host, authToken);

By using the KubernetesConstants.KUBERNETES_POD_NAME header you can specify your Pod name and pass it to this operation.

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using kubernetes with Spring Boot make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for auto configuration:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.springboot</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-kubernetes-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The component supports 70 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

camel.component.kubernetes-config-maps.enabled

Whether to enable auto configuration of the kubernetes-config-maps component. This is enabled by default.

Boolean

camel.component.kubernetes-config-maps.lazy-start-producer

Whether the producer should be started lazy (on the first message). By starting lazy you can use this to allow CamelContext and routes to startup in situations where a producer may otherwise fail during starting and cause the route to fail being started. By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

Boolean

camel.component.kubernetes-deployments.bridge-error-handler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

Boolean

camel.component.kubernetes-deployments.enabled

Whether to enable auto configuration of the kubernetes-deployments component. This is enabled by default.

Boolean

camel.component.kubernetes-deployments.lazy-start-producer

By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

Boolean

camel.component.kubernetes-hpa.bridge-error-handler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler.
