DevSecOps in Practice with VMware Tanzu

By: Parth Pandit, Robert Hardt

Overview of this book

As Kubernetes (or K8s) becomes more prolific, managing large clusters at scale in a multi-cloud environment becomes more challenging – especially from a developer productivity and operational efficiency point of view. DevSecOps in Practice with VMware Tanzu addresses these challenges by automating the delivery of containerized workloads and controlling multi-cloud Kubernetes operations using Tanzu tools. This comprehensive guide begins with an overview of the VMWare Tanzu platform and discusses its tools for building useful and secure applications using the App Accelerator, Build Service, Catalog service, and API portal. Next, you’ll delve into running those applications efficiently at scale with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and Tanzu Application Platform. As you advance, you’ll find out how to manage these applications, and control, observe, and connect them using Tanzu Mission Control, Tanzu Observability, and Tanzu Service Mesh. Finally, you’ll explore the architecture, capabilities, features, installation, configuration, implementation, and benefits of these services with the help of examples. By the end of this VMware book, you’ll have gained a thorough understanding of the VMWare Tanzu platform and be able to efficiently articulate and solve real-world business problems.

Day 2 – deploying applications to Tanzu Application Platform

In Chapter 2, Developing Cloud-Native Applications, we went in depth into Application Accelerator. To deploy an application to Tanzu Application Platform, we’ll revisit that product. Navigate to the TAP GUI that you just finished installing. It should be at tap-gui.<your-domain>. Then, in the menu down the left-hand side, click on Create. Finally, select the accelerator called Tanzu Java Web App. When you select it, you’ll be prompted for a name, which you can leave as is, and a container registry prefix. If you’re using, it might be something such as<your-project-id>/tanzu-java-web-app. The value you provide will be used in the Tiltfile to tell the Tilt tool where to push your app’s source code so it can be picked up by a Tanzu Application Platform supply chain. This will make more sense shortly. Here’s a reminder of what the accelerator screen should look...
