Please visit the Try Kubernetes section for information regarding a Kubernetes distribution that can be used for this lesson.
A Java runtime version >= 17 is also required for this lesson. This is because Spring Boot 3 requires Java 17 as its minimum version. This lesson is tested on Java minimum versions 17.0.5.
kubectl cli is optional. The instructions in this lesson don’t require it, but if you want to experiment on your own afterward, you may need it. If you don't have it already, it can be downloaded and installed with the
minikube kubectl -- command. You can see step 3 on the minikube getting started guide for more information.
