Testing out the new PFS (Pivotal Function Service) alpha release on minikube

I quickly installed PFS on minikube as per the instructions below so I could write my own function service. Below shows that function service and how I invoked using the PFS CLI and Postman

1. Install PFS using this url for minikube. Refer to these instructions to install PFS on minikube

https://docs.pivotal.io/pfs/install-on-minikube.html

2. Once installed verify PFS has been installed using some commands as follows

$ watch -n 1 kubectl get pod --all-namespaces

Output:



Various namespaces are created as shown below:

$ kubectl get namespaces
NAME                   STATUS    AGE
default                    Active       19h
istio-system           Active       18h
knative-build        Active       18h
knative-eventing  Active       18h
knative-serving    Active       18h
kube-public            Active       19h
kube-system          Active        19h

Ensure PFS is installed as shown below:

$ pfs version
Version
  pfs cli: 0.1.0 (e5de84d12d10a060aeb595310decbe7409467c99)

3. Now we are going to deploy this employee function which exists on GitHub as follows

https://github.com/papicella/emp-function-service


The Function code is as follows:

  
package com.example.empfunctionservice;

import lombok.extern.slf4j.Slf4j;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;

import java.util.function.Function;

@Slf4j
@SpringBootApplication
public class EmpFunctionServiceApplication {

    private static EmployeeService employeeService;

    public EmpFunctionServiceApplication(EmployeeService employeeService) {
        this.employeeService = employeeService;
    }

    @Bean
    public Function<String, String> findEmployee() {
        return id -> {
            String response = employeeService.getEmployee(id);

            return response;
        };
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(EmpFunctionServiceApplication.class, args);
    }

}

4. We are going to deploy a Spring Boot Function as per the REPO above. More information on Java Functions for PFS can be found here

https://docs.pivotal.io/pfs/using-java-functions.html


5. Let's create a function called "emp-function" as shown below

$ pfs function create emp-function --git-repo https://github.com/papicella/emp-function-service --image $REGISTRY/$REGISTRY_USER/emp-function -w -v

Output: (Just showing the last few lines here)

papicella@papicella:~/pivotal/software/minikube$ pfs function create emp-function --git-repo https://github.com/papicella/emp-function-service --image $REGISTRY/$REGISTRY_USER/emp-function -w -v

pfs function create completed successfully

6. Let's invoke our function as shown below by returning each Employee record using it's ID.

$ pfs service invoke emp-function --text -- -w '\n' -d '1'
curl http://192.168.64.3:32380/ -H 'Host: emp-function.default.example.com' -H 'Content-Type: text/plain' -w '\n' -d 1
Employee(id=1, name=pas)

$ pfs service invoke emp-function --text -- -w '\n' -d '2'
curl http://192.168.64.3:32380/ -H 'Host: emp-function.default.example.com' -H 'Content-Type: text/plain' -w '\n' -d 2
Employee(id=2, name=lucia)

The "pfs service invoke" will show you what an external command will look like to invoke the function service. The IP address here is just the same IP address returned by "minikube ip" as shown below.

$ minikube ip
192.168.64.3

7. Let's view our services using "pfs" CLI

$ pfs service list
NAME            STATUS
emp-function  Running
hello                Running

pfs service list completed successfully

8. Invoking from Postman, ensuring we issue a POST request and pass the correct headers as shown below
