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 the build stage

The primary function of the build stage of the continuous deployment pipeline is to build artifacts and a container image and push it to a registry from which it can be deployed and tested. Of course, we cannot build anything without code, so we'll have to check out the repository as well.

Since building things without running static analysis, unit tests, and other types of validation against static code should be illegal and punishable by public shame, we'll include those steps as well.

We won't deal with building artifacts, nor we are going to run static testing and analysis from inside the pipeline. Instead, we'll continue relying on Docker's multistage builds for all those things, just as we did in the previous chapters.

Finally, we couldn't push to a registry without authentication, so we'll have to log in to Docker...
