Fuse Integration Services 2.0 (FIS 2.0) for Openshift introduces a number of new features. In my opinion, the most exciting ones are the introduction of S2I binary workflow and Spring Boot support. We shall be using these 2 new features in this article. As FIS is for Openshift, as its name implies, one needs a development Openshift environment to experiment with it. There are several ways to set up a development Openshift environment on your laptop. The following are the most popular options:
- oc cluster up – this is a relatively new feature introduced in Openshift Origin 1.3. This option uses a containerized version of Openshift and runs it locally on your laptop. It requires Docker to run.
- Red Hat Development Suite (RHDS) – this development suite comes with an installer (Windows and Mac only at present) that installs JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat Container Development Kit and all the necessary dependencies. It is based on Vagrant, VirtualBox. Openshift Enterprise and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In contrast to option 1 which is based on Docker, RHDS is based on a virtual machine or VM.
