Appendix B. Updating the deployment configuration of an example application
The deployment configuration for an example application contains information related to deploying and running the application in OpenShift, such as route information or readiness probe location. The deployment configuration of an example application is stored in a set of YAML files. For examples that use the Fabric8 Maven Plugin, the YAML files are located in the
src/main/fabric8/ directory. For examples using Nodeshift, the YAML files are located in the
The deployment configuration files used by the Fabric8 Maven Plugin and Nodeshift do not have to be full OpenShift resource definitions. Both Fabric8 Maven Plugin and Nodeshift can take the deployment configuration files and add some missing information to create a full OpenShift resource definition. The resource definitions generated by the Fabric8 Maven Plugin are available in the
target/classes/META-INF/fabric8/ directory. The resource definitions generated by Nodeshift are available in the

Edit an existing YAML file or create an additional YAML file with your configuration update.
For example, if your example already has a YAML file with a
readinessProbeconfigured, you could change the
pathvalue to a different available path to check for readiness:
spec: template: spec: containers: readinessProbe: httpGet: path: /path/to/probe port: 8080 scheme: HTTP ...
readinessProbeis not configured in an existing YAML file, you can also create a new YAML file in the same directory with the
- Deploy the updated version of your example using Maven or npm.
Verify that your configuration updates show in the deployed version of your example.

If you updated the configuration of your application directly using the web-based console or the
oc CLI client, export and add these changes to your YAML file. Use the
oc export all command to show the configuration of your deployed application.
