The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to continuously deploying applications with Jenkins into a Kubernetes cluster. The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit: Continuously Deploying Applications with Jenkins to a Kubernetes Cluster is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book guides readers through the process of building, testing, and deploying applications through fully automated pipelines. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including an exploration of continuous delivery and deployment in Kubernetes using Jenkins. It also shows readers how to perform continuous integration inside these clusters, and discusses the distribution of Kubernetes applications, as well as installing and setting up Jenkins. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

Defining continuous deployment steps

We'll try to define a minimum set of steps any continuous deployment pipeline should execute. Do not take them literally. Every company is different, and every project has something special. You will likely have to extend them to suit your particular needs. However, that should not be a problem. Once we get a grip on those, that are mandatory, extending the process should be relatively straightforward, except if you need to interact with tools that do not have a well-defined API nor a good CLI. If that's the case, my recommendation is to drop those tools. They're not worthy of the suffering they often impose.

We can split the pipeline into several stages. We'll need to build the artifacts (after running static tests and analysis). We have to run functional tests because unit testing is not enough. We need to create a release...
