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.

In this chapter, we learned about some new features in Jenkins 2, why Jenkins is so popular, and how to install it. We discussed the improvements with respect to security and plugin installations during setup and how to configure Java and Maven. We took a look at what happens in the background when we create a new job in Jenkins, how to authenticate with Git, and how to configure Git in Jenkins. We then performed a unit test execution in a sample Spring application and configured the Dashboard View plugin with different portlets for customized views. We then learned how to manage the master and slave nodes for load distribution and managing different environments as required, how to configure e-mail notifications for build status, and how to integrate Sonar and Jenkins.

In the next chapter, we will look at one of the most important aspects in terms of the orchestration of the end-to-end pipeline of application delivery. We will discuss the pipeline concept of Jenkins 2 and the build...
