Jenkins Kubernetes Plugin

With the Jenkins Kubernetes Plugin we can add a containerTemplate() for the database container we want to use.


Add a containerTemplate entry for postgres like below:

containerTemplate(args: '-p 6432', name: 'postgres12', image: 'postgres:12',
  envVars: [containerEnvVar(key: 'POSTGRES_PASSWORD', value: 'admin')]

This will add a postgres container to the pod running with port 6432 with the password for the postgres user set to admin. This postgres instance will then be available on localhost:6432.


We add a code block that uses pg_isready to wait for postgres to be ready before we build and run tests.

container('postgres12') {
  print "wait for postgres ready"
  sh('pg_isready -t 60 -h localhost -p 6432')
  print "postgres ready now, continue"

When ebean-test starts it will make a JDBC connection using postgres:admin username and password and will use this to create the database, role and add extensions as needed.


In the logs before the tests actually run we see ebean-test connects to jdbc:postgresql://localhost:6432 and runs sql to create the database, role and extensions necessary to run the tests.
