Create Applications from Open API 2.0 Specifications

New in this release we have enhanced the create command to allow creating an application from an Open API 2.0 Specification.  Simply proceed through the use of the create command as normal, but for Java, Node, and Swift runtimes, there is a new starter with the description Create Project or Empty StarterUsing this starter will then provide a prompt where you can enter the location of the Open API 2.0 document as a URL.  For example:  https://github.com/OAI/OpenAPI-Specification/blob/master/examples/v2.0/json/petstore.json

Deploy Applications to IBM Cloud Private 2.1.0.2

This release provides support to seamlessly use the helm client provided by IBM Cloud Private 2.1.0.2 to deploy using the deploy command to that environment.  To setup your client for this deployment, there are two new prerequisites:

  1. You must use a specific helm release as described here.
  2. You must also use the bx pr plug-in to add a certificate for use by helm as detailed here.  Instructions for installing the pr plug-in are here.

With those prerequisites completed, deploying to your IBM Cloud Private is completed as with prior releases with bx dev deploy -t container from your application directory.  The deploy command will prompt you for a deployment image name for the application.  This is <your-ICP-host-and-port>/<your-ICP-namespace>/<the-app-name>.  For example:  mycluster.icp:8500/default/someAppName
