Overview of this book

Spring 5 and its ecosystem can be used to build robust architectures effectively. Software architecture is the underlying piece that helps us accomplish our business goals whilst supporting the features that a product demands. This book explains in detail how to choose the right architecture and apply best practices during your software development cycle to avoid technical debt and support every business requirement. Choosing the right architecture model to support your business requirements is one of the key decisions you need to take when a new product is being created from scratch or is being refactored to support new business demands. This book gives you insights into the most common architectural models and guides you when and where they can be used. During this journey, you’ll see cutting-edge technologies surrounding the Spring products, and understand how to use agile techniques such as DevOps and continuous delivery to take your software to production effectively.

Chapter 11. DevOps and Release Management

DevOps is an important technique that helps teams to prevent their work from becoming isolated. It also helps remove boring processes and unnecessary bureaucracy throughout the whole software development cycle. This technique is used throughout the whole software development process, from writing code to deploying applications to production.

This chapter will demonstrate how to achieve these goals by embracing automation in order to reduce the number of manual tasks and deploy applications using automated pipelines in charge of validating written code, provisioning infrastructure, and deploying the required artifacts into a production environment. In this chapter, we will review the following topics:

  • Silos
  • DevOps culture motivations
  • DevOps adoption
  • Embracing automation
  • Infrastructure as code
  • Applying DevOps practices using Spring Framework
  • Release management pipelines
  • Continuous delivery
