Code Deployment

Code Deployment

Code Deployment

Good day,

We have a large Websphere application which is written by a vendor, and JAR files are released to internal support personnel.
It is a hugely complex system and mistakes are made during releases to QA & Production.

I've looked at Artifactory/Maven/Gradle etc. which have a lot of functionality, but none of which we actually require.
No development is done in-house, so it is just a matter of moving the JARS from one environment to another, and provide rollback functionality.

By the way, I am a C/Python programmer just helping out in the app team, so bare with me smile

Thank you.

RE: Code Deployment

What's the deployment platform (OS/version)?

RE: Code Deployment

Hi TonHu

The OS is AIX 5.3, and 6.1
I am looking at Puppet and Chef.
It seems to be able to do what I want.
Just need to into how to tie this in to Websphere.

Thanks for the response.

RE: Code Deployment

If you just receive jars and put them into the classpath, I'd dare to suggest to externalise dependencies to a directory and just copy the jar files there. Looks fairly simple and maybe the inclusion of more external elements (artifactory, maven) would only make things more complex.
