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.

Creating a pipeline for compiling and executing test units

For demonstration purposes, let's try a simple scenario to create a pipeline for compiling source files and executing unit test cases:

  1. Let's use the following script in the Script box:

            echo 'Hello from Pipeline Demo'
            stage 'Compile'
            build 'PetClinic-Compile'
            stage 'Test'
            build 'PetClinic-Test'

  2. Click on Build Now and go to Console Output to verify the execution process:

  3. Go to the build job's main page. We can see Stage View here. Remember, we have created two stages: one is Compile and the other is Test. Stage View provides instant visualization. It provides details such as build completion time, the node on which the build has been executed, and whether the build has executed successfully or failed:

  4. For a particular build execution, we can verify Pipeline Steps as well:

  5. Click on Full Stage View to get a full-screen view, as shown in the following screenshot:
