Module Launcher

The Module Launcher provides a single entry point that bootstraps module JARs located in a home directory. A single Docker image that contains such a directory of module JARs can then be used to launch any of those JARs based on an environment variable. When running standalone, a system property may be used instead of an environment variable, so that multiple instances of the Module Launcher may run on a single machine. The following examples demonstrate running the modules for the ticktock stream (time | log).


1: clone and build the spring-cloud-stream project:

git clone
cd spring-cloud-stream
mvn -s .settings.xml package
cd ..

2: copy the spring-cloud-stream source and sink sample JARs to /opt/spring/modules:

mkdir -p /opt/spring/modules
cp spring-cloud-stream/spring-cloud-stream-samples/source/target/spring-cloud-stream-sample-source-1.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT-exec.jar /opt/spring/modules/time.jar
cp spring-cloud-stream/spring-cloud-stream-samples/sink/target/spring-cloud-stream-sample-sink-1.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT-exec.jar /opt/spring/modules/log.jar

3: start redis locally via redis-server (optionally start redis-cli and use the MONITOR command to watch activity)

NOTE: redis.conf (on OSX it is found here: /usr/local/etc/redis.conf) may need to be updated to set the binding to an address other than else the docker instances will fail to connect. For example: bind

Running Standalone

From the spring-cloud-stream/spring-cloud-stream-module-launcher directory:

java -Dmodules=time -jar target/spring-cloud-stream-module-launcher-1.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT-exec.jar
java -Dmodules=log -jar target/spring-cloud-stream-module-launcher-1.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT-exec.jar

The time messages will be emitted every 5 seconds. The console for the log module will display each:

2015-06-05 12:39:58.896  INFO 51078 --- [hannel-adapter1] config.ModuleDefinition                  : Received: 2015-06-05 12:39:58
2015-06-05 12:40:02.699  INFO 51078 --- [hannel-adapter1] config.ModuleDefinition                  : Received: 2015-06-05 16:39:52
2015-06-05 12:40:03.897  INFO 51078 --- [hannel-adapter1] config.ModuleDefinition                  : Received: 2015-06-05 12:40:03

NOTE: the two modules will be launched within a single process if both are specified: -Dmodules=time,log

Running with Docker

1: build the module-launcher Docker image, including a copy of the module directory:

From the spring-cloud-stream/spring-cloud-stream-module-launcher directory:

mkdir artifacts
cp -r /opt/spring/modules artifacts/

2: run each module as a docker process by passing environment variables for the module name as well as the host machine's IP address for the redis connection to be established within the container:

docker run -p 8080:8080 -e MODULES=time -e SPRING_REDIS_HOST=<host.ip>
docker run -p 8081:8081 -e MODULES=log -e SPRING_REDIS_HOST=<host.ip>

Running on Lattice

Initial Setup (if necessary)

1: Launch lattice with vagrant as described here.

2: Run a private Docker registry, and configure Lattice to use that as described here.

Deploying Modules

1: Push the Docker image to the private registry (if necessary, run $(boot2docker shellinit) first):

$ docker push

2: Create a Redis instance on Lattice (running as root):

$ ltc create redis redis -r

3: Run the modules as long-running processes (LRPs) on Lattice:

$ ltc create time -e MODULES=time -e SPRING_PROFILES_ACTIVE=cloud
$ ltc create log -e MODULES=log -e SPRING_PROFILES_ACTIVE=cloud
