3.4. Important notes

Important notes for the Fuse 7.10 release of the Fuse on OpenShift distribution:

Support for Fuse 7.10 on OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 4.9
Fuse 7.10 contains updates that enable it to work with OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 4.9. If you plan to upgrade to OCP 4.9, you must upgrade Fuse to version 7.10 before you upgrade OCP to version 4.9. Earlier versions of Fuse (prior to 7.10) do not support OCP 4.9.
Data Virtualization has been removed
Data Virtualization is deprecated since Fuse 7.7 and has been removed from Fuse 7.8.
Spring Boot 1 is has been removed
Spring Boot 1 is deprecated since Fuse 7.7 and has been removed from Fuse 7.8. We recommend that you migrate your Spring Boot applications to Spring Boot 2, following the guidance in the Spring Boot 2.0 Migration Guide.
Fabric8 Maven plugin is removed
Fabric8 Maven plugin is completely removed from Fuse 7.10 and replaced with OpenShift Maven plugin since Fuse 7.10. Use OpenShift Maven plugin to build and deploy your applications.
Running quickstarts with JDK11
Use the correct JDK11 profile during the compile time if you want to use JDK11 based image at runtime. When building and deploying the quickstarts using JDK11, ensure that you have installed JDK11 on your build machine and then build your quickstarts using the correct JDK11 profile.
The eap-camel-jpa quickstart has been removed
The eap-camel-jpa quickstart has been removed from Fuse 7.8 due to an issue with a dependency.
Jolokia not externally accessible on Fuse 7.8
Starting in Fuse 7.8, Jolokia default protocol is switched from HTTP to HTTPS.
