Follow this step-by-step guide for creating a continuous delivery pipeline using all of the new features in Jenkins 2.0 such as Pipeline as a Code, multi-branch pipeline, and more. You will learn three crucial elements for achieving a faster software delivery pipeline: a fungible build/test environment, manageable and reproducible pipelines, and a scalable build/test infrastructure.

Pro Continuous Delivery demonstrates how to create a highly available, active/passive Jenkins server using some niche technologies.

What You'll Learn

  • Create a highly available, active/passive Jenkins server using CoreOS and Docker, and using Pacemaker and Corosync
  • Use a Jenkins multi-branch pipeline to automatically perform continuous integration whenever there is a new branch in your source control system
  • Describe your continuous delivery pipeline with Jenkinsfile
  • Host Jenkins server on a cloud solution
  • Run Jenkins inside a container using Docker
  • Discover how the distributed nature of Git and the “merge before build” feature of Jenkins can be used to implement gated check-in
  • Implement a scalable build farm using Docker and Kubernetes

Who This Book Is For

  • You have experience implementing continuous integration and continuous delivery using Jenkins freestyle Jobs and wish to use the new Pipeline as a Code feature introduced in Jenkins 2.0
  • Your source code is on a Git-like version control system (Git, GitHub, GitLab, etc.) and you wish to leverage the advantages of a multi-branch pipeline in Jenkins
  • Your infrastructure is on a Unix-like platform and you wish to create a scalable, distributed build/test farm using Docker or Kubernetes
  • You are in need of a highly available system for your Jenkins Server using open source tools and technologies
