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.

Common day-2 activities for Tanzu Build Service

In this section, we will go through some useful operations we can perform on TBS.

Building application container images

In this section, we will learn how to register our application with TBS for the first time, create the first container image, run that container image locally, retrigger the image build process again by modifying the application configuration, and, finally, verify the newly created container image to reflect the application change. This will be an exciting journey to use TBS for its main purpose.

Registering an application with TBS

The main reason to use TBS is to gain the ability to build application container images in a fully automatic and secure way. Let’s see how we can build container images of a cloud-native application using the TBS setup we have completed. We will use a sample Spring Framework-based application, Spring Pet Clinic, available at
