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 9. Orchestrating Application Deployment

"Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure"

This chapter describes in detail how to orchestrate different build jobs for continuous integration, configuration management, continuous delivery, and so on. It will cover how the build pipeline plugin and pipeline feature of Jenkins 2.0 can be used to orchestrate an end-to-end automation process for application deployment.

Until now, we have covered continuous integration, cloud provisioning using Chef, configuration management, and continuous delivery. Each was configured in a unique build job. Now we are only going to manage all those build jobs in a manner that the checkout or execution of the build pipeline will result in the checkout, compilation, unit test execution, installation of the Linux instance on Amazon EC2, installation of the runtime environment, configuration...
