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 covered how we can create a hosted Chef account, configure a workstation, upload a community cookbook to a hosted Chef account, converge a node, use community cookbooks to install Tomcat, verify the convergence of a node on a hosted Chef account, and verify success and failure reports. Essentially, we are standardizing the process of setting up a runtime environment from a centralized location. Most of the configuration tools do almost similar things, and you can decide based on experience and other features which configuration management tool you want. Automating the repetitive process in any field is the key to increasing efficiency, and configuration management tools do exactly that in the end-to-end automation of application delivery. In this chapter, we automated installing tomcat and other runtime requirements for sample Java EE application so we can deploy the WAR file created by Continuous Integration process.

In the next chapter, we will discuss Docker...
