Overview of this book

The DevOps culture is growing at a massive rate, as many organizations are adopting it. However, implementing it for web applications is one of the biggest challenges experienced by many developers and admins, which this book will help you overcome using various tools, such as Chef, Docker, and Jenkins. On the basis of the functionality of these tools, the book is divided into three parts. The first part shows you how to use Jenkins 2.0 for Continuous Integration of a sample JEE application. The second part explains the Chef configuration management tool, and provides an overview of Docker containers, resource provisioning in cloud environments using Chef, and Configuration Management in a cloud environment. The third part explores Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment in AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Docker, all using Jenkins 2.0. This book combines the skills of both web application deployment and system configuration as each chapter contains one or more practical hands-on projects. You will be exposed to real-world project scenarios that are progressively presented from easy to complex solutions. We will teach you concepts such as hosting web applications, configuring a runtime environment, monitoring and hosting on various cloud platforms, and managing them. This book will show you how to essentially host and manage web applications along with Continuous Integration, Cloud Computing, Configuration Management, Continuous Monitoring, Continuous Delivery, and Deployment.

Chapter 2. Continuous Integration with Jenkins 2

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."                                                                       -Walt Disney

Jenkins 2 has arrived. It comes with built-in support for delivery pipelines, improved usability, a new setup experience, and complete backward compatibility with existing Jenkins installations. We will be using Jenkins 2 in this book.

This chapter describes in detail how Jenkins plays an important role in continuous integration. It covers how to prepare a runtime environment for application lifecycle management and configure it with Jenkins. It manages all the aspects of running a build to create a distribution file or Web application ARchive (WAR) file for deployment by integrating with a source code repository such as SVN or Git for a sample Java EE application.

You will learn how to install and configure Jenkins, and you'll be able to get end-to-end experience in build job creation and configuration...
