Overview of IBM App Connect in containers (Long Term Support)
IBM® App Connect Enterprise certified container is a lightweight enterprise integration engine that provides a way for systems and applications to communicate with each other.
IBM App Connect Enterprise certified container is based on an image of the IBM App Connect Enterprise software product and is offered as an executable package that you can deploy and run within containerized environments. You can deploy the package independently into a Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform or Kubernetes cluster, or deploy it as part of IBM Cloud Pak for Integration.
IBM App Connect Enterprise certified container is built as a Kubernetes application and is delivered as a Kubernetes Operator. Operators provide a way to package, deploy, and manage Kubernetes applications.
