Code Ready Containers – Decision Management developer tools update

For some time now we’ve been working on updating your experience using Code Ready Containers, a container platform installation for your local machine, by providing interesting developer tooling and project examples.

There is no better way to learn about container technologies, container platforms, and container-based application development than getting hands-on with great open technologies.

The first example here is the latest version of the Red Hat Decision Manager, version 7.5, installed on OpenShift Container Platform (either your own installation or using our Code Ready Containers installation).

Get started today with rules and business logic in just a few simple steps, as follows.

AppDev in Cloud with Red Hat Decision Manager Install Demo

This demo is to install Red Hat Decision Manager in the Cloud based on leveraging any Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. It delivers a fully functioning Decision Manager containerized on OpenShift Container Platform.

Install on OpenShift Container Platform

There are two options to install and run this project on the OpenShift Container Platform; use your own existing installation or to install on Code Ready Containers which provides you with a local OpenShift cluster.

  1. Ensure you have an OpenShift container based installation, such as one of the following:
  1. Download and unzip this demo.
  2. Download Red Hat JBoss EAP & Red Hat Decision Manager, add to installs directory (see installs/README).
  3. Run ‘’ or ‘init.bat’ file. ‘init.bat’ must be run with Administrative privileges:
# If using your own installation just point to Openshift Container Platform IP Address
   # as follows:
   $ ./  # example for OCP.
# If using Code Ready Containers or the Code Ready Containers Easy Install project, just add the cluster
   # address to HOST_IP variable found at the top of the init.{sh|bat} files, for example:
   # HOST_IP=api.crc.testing 
   # Now just run the script without any IP address arguments and it picks up that hostname as follows:
   $ ./

Now log in to Red Hat Decision Manager to start developing containerized process automation projects (the address will be generated by OCP):
