In a Watcher in the fabric8 Kubernetes client events() API, what resources can I watch?


I am exploring the <a href="https://github.com/fabric8io/kubernetes-client/blob/master/kubernetes-client/src/main/java/io/fabric8/kubernetes/client/KubernetesClient.java#L104" rel="nofollow">(undocumented?) events() API</a> in <a href="https://github.com/fabric8io/kubernetes-client" rel="nofollow">Fabric8's Kubernetes client project</a>.

Specifically, I see that I can do something like the following:

client.events().inAnyNamespace().watch(new Watcher<Something>() { @Override public final void eventReceived(final Action action, final Something something) { } @Override public final void onClose(final KubernetesClientException kubernetesClientException) { if (kubernetesClientException != null) { // log? throw? } } });

What are the permitted values of something and Something for something useful to happen? I'm assuming they are <em>supposed</em> to be things like Pods, Services, etc. but I'm not sure.

<a href="https://github.com/fabric8io/kubernetes-client/blob/master/kubernetes-client/src/main/java/io/fabric8/kubernetes/client/Watcher.java#L20" rel="nofollow">Watcher's sole type parameter is declared as <T></a>, so it would appear I could create a new Watcher<Integer>, but I'm willing to bet money that will never be called. This suggests that there is actually a bound in practice on <T>, but I don't know what it is, or why it would have been omitted if so.

If I had to guess, I'd guess from the parameter name, resource, that it would be something like T extends<a href="https://github.com/fabric8io/kubernetes-client/blob/master/kubernetes-client/src/main/java/io/fabric8/kubernetes/client/dsl/Resource.java" rel="nofollow">Resource</a><?, ?> but again, that's only a guess.

Thanks for any pointers, particularly to other documentation I'm sure I've missed.

<strong>Update #1</strong>: From banging around in the source code, I can see that the only place that a Watcher.Action's eventReceived() method is called <a href="https://github.com/fabric8io/kubernetes-client/blob/master/kubernetes-client/src/main/java/io/fabric8/kubernetes/client/dsl/internal/WatchConnectionManager.java#L207-L217" rel="nofollow">forces the payload to be considered to be a HasMetadata object</a>. Maybe that's my answer?


You can watch a particular pod or particular job for example. The T type in that case is Pod or Job respectively. Try

kube.extensions().jobs().createNew()...done().watch(new Watcher<Job>(){...})
