Springboot+Docker+Minikube+Kubectl - Continuous Integration(CI) Local

In this blog, we will try to learn springboot with docker and deploying it to local k8s cluster hosted with minikube.


Make sure you have minikube installed
Make sure you have kubectl installed
Make sure you have docker installed
Dockerhub account to push the images

Refer my blog for installing via chocolatey for windows


1.Create springboot project with following dependencies
2.Sample Docker file reference to create the image

FROM openjdk:13
ARG JAR_FILE= ./target/spring-dockr-k8s-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
ADD ./target/spring-dockr-k8s-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar app.jar
ENTRYPOINT ["java","-jar","/app.jar"]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  1. Pom file changes to build and push the image to dockerhub
 <version>${dockerfile-maven-version}</version>         <executions>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Build, Install and Push

If your pom changes are correct then,

mvn clean install' should already build an image for you, and you should see below logs.

[INFO] Successfully built sanjaybsm/spring-dockr-k8s:latest
Below snap from inteliij, but you can manually also run the commands from command line to push the image,


[INFO] Image 54ab11ed5591: Preparing
[INFO] Image b8cb43830a76: Preparing
[INFO] Image 93c304238ab8: Preparing
[INFO] Image 12a9cd7d069e: Preparing

[INFO] Image b8cb43830a76: Layer already exists
[INFO] Image 54ab11ed5591: Pushing
[INFO] Image 12a9cd7d069e: Layer already exists
[INFO] Image 54ab11ed5591: Pushed
[INFO] latest: digest: sha256:f2ddde51cbd4005ec90c25698649e1cf960cd1fbeb308f1de4b05b9a53606c48 size: 1166

Start minikube and run the image locally

Start minikube minikube start

Start the minikube tunnel so that you can access the app outside k8s cluster minikube tunnel
keep the tunnel open, and this change is needed for windows.

Create deployment

kubectl create deployment testspringk8s --image={dockerhub_username}/{image_name}:{version}

e.g.kubectl create deployment testspringk8s --image=sanjaybsm/spring-dockr-k8s

Expose Deployment

kubectl expose deployment testspringk8s --type=LoadBalancer --port=9000

Run this command to know the externalIp assigned

kubectl get svc

It should show something like below

if it's pending it means that your tunnel is not running or some issue with your minikube

Happy learning!
