Practically apply Code Ready Containers.

Previously, I've started a refresh of the Red Hat Demo Central collection of AppDev in the cloud projects by updating the Code Ready Containers Easy Install.

As it promises, you'll have a local container platform cluster installed on your personal machine based on OpenShift Container Platform 4.2, in just minutes. The next step is to start leveraging this local container platform cluster for some cloud-native development experience, focusing on bringing all the existing content up to date.

This article outlines getting started with the Red Hat Process Automation Easy Install project on the above installation as default, though you can point this installation to any existing OpenShift Container Platform (pass an IP address).

Let's take a look at how easy it is to get started with a Code Ready Containers Red Hat Process Automation Easy Install project.Image title

Anyone spending any time with the content found on Red Hat Demo Central should notice that all projects are designed using a template for consistent installation experiences. This one is no different and you can follow the same installation steps you would expect in the readme file.

Install on OpenShift Container Platform

There are two options to install and run this project on the OpenShift Container Platform (OCP): use your own existing installation or to install on Code Ready Containers which provides you with a local OCP cluster.

  • Ensure you have an OpenShift container based installation, such as one of the following:
  • Download and unzip this demo.
  • Download Red Hat JBoss EAP and Red Hat Process Automation Manager, add to installs directory (see installs/README).
  • Run init.sh or  init.bat file.  init.bat must be run with Administrative privileges:
 # If using your own installation just point to Openshift Container Platform IP Address
   # as follows:
   $ ./init.sh  # example for OCP.

# If using Code Ready Containers or the Code Ready Containers Easy Install project, just add the cluster 
   # address to HOST_IP variable found at the top of the init.{sh|bat} files, for example:
   # HOST_IP=api.crc.testing  
   # Now just run the script without any IP address arguments and it picks up that hostname as follows:
   $ ./init.sh

Now log in to Red Hat Process Automation Manager to start developing containerized process automation projects (the address will be generated by OCP):
