Running OpenAM and OpenDJ on Kubernetes with Google Container Engine



Still quite experimental, but if you are adventurous, have a look at:

https://github.com/ForgeRock/frstack/tree/master/docker/k8


This will set up a two node Kubernetes cluster running OpenAM and OpenDJ.  This uses images on the Docker hub that provide nightly builds for OpenAM and OpenDJ.

I will be presenting this at the ForgeRock IRM summit this thursday. Fingers crossed that the demo gods smile down on me!

OpenDJ Nightly Builds…

For the last few months, there’s been a lot of changes in the OpenDJ project in order to prepare the next major release : OpenDJ 3.0.0. While doing so, we’ve tried to keep options opened and continued to make most of the changes in the trunk/opends part, keeping the possibility to release a 2.8 version. And we’ve made tons of work in branches as well as in trunk/opendj. As part of the move to the trunk, we’ve changed the factory to now build with Maven. Finally, at the end of last week, we’ve made the switch on the nightly builds and are now building what will be OpenDJ 3, from the trunk.

For those who are regularly checking the nightly builds, the biggest change is going to be the version number. The new build is now showing a development version of 3.0.

$ start-ds -V
OpenDJ 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT
Build 20150506012828
--
 Name Build number Revision number
Extension: snmp-mib2605 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT 12206

We are still missing the MSI package (sorry to the Windows users, we are trying to find the Maven plugin that will allow us to build the package in a similar way as previously with ant), and we are also looking at restoring the JNLP based installer, but otherwise OpenDJ 3 nightly builds are available for testing, in different forms : Zip, RPM and Debian packages.

We have also changed the minimal version of Java required to run the OpenDJ LDAP directory server. Java 7 or higher is required.

We’re looking forward to getting your feedback.
