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.

Configuring the build pipeline for build job orchestration

Now, it is time to integrate all the work in a way that continuous integration, cloud provisioning, configuration management, and continuous delivery is orchestrated in a sequence:

  1. In the Jenkins dashboard, go to PetClinic-Build-Pipeline-View:

  2. Click on Configure to view settings or modify them:

  3. Once we click on OK, changes are saved and we see the configuration, as shown in the following screenshot. It is the output of the upstream and downstream job configuration:

To create complete build pipeline mentioned in previous screenshot, we need to configure post build actions of each build job that we want to execute in specific sequence. We have different build job for continuous integration, configuration management and continuous delivery so we will configure them as upstream and downstream jobs to make pipeline. Let's look at each build job configuration step by step:

  1. Click on PetClinic-Compile | Configure. Go to Post-build Actions...
