Overview of this book

AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodeBuild, and CodePipeline are scalable services offered by AWS that automate an application's build and deployment pipeline. In order to deliver tremendous speed and agility, every organization is moving toward automating their entire application pipeline. This book will cover all the AWS services required to automate your deployment to your instances. You'll begin by setting up and using one of the AWS services for automation –CodeCommit. Next, you'll learn how to build a sample Maven and NodeJS application using CodeBuild. After you've built the application, you'll see how to use CodeDeploy to deploy the application in EC2/Auto Scaling. You'll also build a highly scalable and fault tolerant Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline using some easy-to-follow recipes. Following this, you'll achieve CI/CD for a microservice application and reduce the risk within your software development life cycle globally. You'll also learn to set up an infrastructure using CloudFormation templates and Ansible, and see how to automate AWS resources using AWS Lambda. Finally, you'll learn to automate instances in AWS and automate the deployment lifecycle of applications. By the end of this book, you'll be able to minimize application downtime and implement CI/CD, gaining total control over your software development lifecycle.

Application deployment using Jenkinsfile

In this recipe, we will deploy an application using Jenkinsfile. It will be checked in along with the source code. The Jenkins pipeline plugin will automatically detect the Jenkinsfile present in the application and start running the Jenkinsfile and perform all the operation or steps that are mentioned inside Jenkinsfile.

Getting ready

To deploy the application we need to perform the following setup first:

  • Jenkins 2.0 installed on a server and make sure that it is running on port 80, cause the application that we will deploy is running on port 8080. We are not using a third server to deploy the application. We will going to deploy the application on Jenkins server only.
