1. Deploy the java helm chart on Opensshift


    Deploying a Java Helm chart on OpenShift involves several steps, which include creating the necessary OpenShift credentials, setting up a Kubernetes provider for Pulumi to interact with your OpenShift cluster, and finally deploying the Helm chart.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy a Java Helm chart to OpenShift. This program assumes you have already configured kubectl to communicate with your OpenShift cluster and have Helm charts available for deployment.

    First, you need to create a new directory for your Pulumi project, initialize a new Pulumi project, and install necessary npm packages.

    In a new directory, run these commands:

    pulumi new typescript npm install @pulumi/kubernetes

    Now let’s take a look at the Pulumi program that deploys a Helm chart to OpenShift:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Creating a provider resource that specifies the OpenShift cluster's context; this will allow Pulumi to authenticate against the OpenShift cluster. const openshiftProvider = new k8s.Provider("openshiftProvider", { kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, // Make sure your KUBECONFIG environment variable is set }); // Deploying the Java Helm chart using the OpenShift provider. // Replace `path/to/helm/chart`, `helm-chart-name`, and `helm-chart-version` with your specific chart location, name, and version respectively. const javaApp = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("java-helm-chart", { path: "path/to/helm/chart", chart: "helm-chart-name", version: "helm-chart-version", // Optionally, you can specify values to override settings within your Helm chart. values: { service: { type: "ClusterIP" }, // Additional values can be added here }, }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // Exporting the ClusterIP service URL of the deployed Java application. export const javaAppServiceUrl = javaApp.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "java-helm-chart-service", "spec.clusterIP");

    This program does the following:

    1. Imports the Pulumi Kubernetes SDK.
    2. Sets up the openshiftProvider to authenticate with the OpenShift cluster using the KUBECONFIG environment variable, which should be set in your environment to the correct kubeconfig file that contains access information for your OpenShift cluster.
    3. Deploys the Helm chart to the specified OpenShift cluster using the Java Helm chart located in path/to/helm/chart, with custom values defined in the values object.
    4. Exports the ClusterIP service URL of the Java application, which can be used to interact with the service within the cluster network.

    Replace path/to/helm/chart, helm-chart-name, and helm-chart-version with the path to your Helm chart, the chart name, and version, respectively. If you have custom values for configuring your Java Helm chart, include them in the values object.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the TypeScript code to a file named index.ts in your Pulumi project directory.
    2. Run pulumi up in the command line, in the same directory, to apply the Pulumi configuration. Pulumi CLI will prompt you to confirm the deployment.

    Ensure that you have an OpenShift cluster available and kubectl configured with the necessary context to interact with it. The KUBECONFIG environment variable is needed for Pulumi to authenticate to your cluster — ensure it points to the correct kubeconfig file before executing the Pulumi program.

    Keep in mind that actual Helm charts and their configurations can vary widely, and this program provides a basic template to get you started with deploying a Java application on OpenShift using Pulumi and Helm.
