Consul Service Discovery
Consul is a distributed, highly available, and data center aware solution to connect and configure applications across dynamic, distributed infrastructure. It's often used as service discovery backend to register and locate the services composing your system. Consul makes it simple for services to register themselves and to discover other services via a DNS or HTTP interface. External services can be registered as well.
This page explains how Stork can use Consul to handle the service discovery.
First, you need to add the Stork Consul Service Discovery provider:
<dependency> <groupId>io.smallrye.stork</groupId> <artifactId>smallrye-stork-service-discovery-consul</artifactId> <version>SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency>
For each service expected to be registered in Consul, configure the lookup:
stork.my-service.service-discovery=consul stork.my-service.service-discovery.consul-host=localhost stork.my-service.service-discovery.consul-port=8500
Stork looks for the service with the given name (
my-service in the previous example).
Supported attributes are the following:
||The Consul host|
||The Consul port|
||Whether to use health check|
