Re: wiring microservices together

I didn't realize that. That's awesome. Loving OpenShift a little more everyday.

Templates indeed look like the way to go for me and being able to look at the source of working templates is fantastic.

Hi Candice.

What you need is already there. All services may be referenced by it's name. There is an internal DNS service for that.
Suppose you've created 2 microservices: ms1 and ms2. In order to ms1 connect to ms2, just use the hostname as the same name for the service, i.e. "ms2".

Regarding deployments, "templates" are exactly what you are looking for. Templates have "parameters", where one can input data. Those values can be used inside other objects of the templates (a templates is basically a list of objects to be built, plus optional parameters). Those parameters can be referenced like shell variables.
For example, see how this[1] parameter is being used here[2].

You may what to start from an existing template from your own installation. Just "oc get templates -n openshift", then "oc export templates/<name> -n openshift".

I understand how it is possible, using OpenShift to create a few pods as microservices and to wire them together to create a composite application. Each pod/microservice gets its own build and deployment lifecycle, which is great. With my current knowledge the way I would gradually build this application is less than optimal:

I would start by deploying service 1, note its IP address then,
I would deploy service 2 and wire service 1's IP address as it depends on it
...and so on

So I'm wondering if there is a way that I can discover services at runtime, possibly by name. I know about fabric8's api but at first glance it seems a bit cumbersome to use.

Ideally I would like to deploy the entire app made of multiple services in one step, as a template, for instance. Again what I don't understand is how the wiring of service is accomplished in a generic way.
