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.

Integrating the deployment operation

Till now we have covered Pipeline or orchestration of different tasks and now let's integrate pipeline and deployment automation. By doing this, we will complete Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery with orchestration. Let's try to integrate the deployment operation into the build pipeline.

We will need to perform the following tasks:

  1. Compile source files.

  2. Execute JUnit test cases.

  3. Archive the artifact/WAR file: It is used to archive build artifacts, such as JAR files, WAR files, and ZIP files, so they can be downloaded later. Add Post-build Actions to PetClinic-Test to archive the artifact:

  4. Execute the build job, as shown in the following screenshot, and verify whether it has been successfully archived or not. If you see Finished: SUCCESS, then the build job was successfully executed:

  5. We need to add a build step to copy artifacts from PetClinic-Test. Check the Copy Artifact Plugin checkbox, and then click on Install without restart:

  6. Configure...
