- Explore Continuous Integration and automation, along with how to manage and configure Jenkins
- Master using Jenkins to build, test, and package Java applications
- Learn about Jenkins' extensible features with automated deployment on cloud platforms such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Microsoft Azure App Services
- Learn about creating a pipeline using Build Pipeline plugin and the Pipeline as Code feature available after the release of Jenkins 2.0
In agile development practices, developers need to integrate their work frequently to fix bugs or to create a new feature or functionality. Jenkins is used specifically for Continuous Integration, helping to enforce the principles of agile development. This book focuses on the latest and stable release of Jenkins (2.5 and later), featuring the latest features, such as Pipeline as Code, the new setup experience, and the improved UI. With the all-new Pipeline as Code feature, you will be able to build simple or advanced pipelines easily and rapidly, hence improving your teams' productivity.
This book begins by tackling the installation of the necessary software dependencies and libraries you'll need to perform Continuous Integration for a Java application. From there, you'll integrate code repositories, applications, and build tools for the implementation of Continuous Integration.
Finally, you will also learn how to automate your deployment on cloud platforms such as AWS and Microsoft Azure, along with a few advanced testing techniques.
