Continuous Delivery with Docker and Jenkins: Delivering software at scale

Unleash the combination of Docker and Jenkins in order to enhance the DevOps workflowKey FeaturesBuild reliable and secure applications using Docker containers.Create a complete Continuous Delivery pipeline using Docker, Jenkins, and Ansible.Deliver your applications directly on the Docker Swarm cluster.Create more complex solutions using multi-containers and database migrations.Book DescriptionThe combination of Docker and Jenkins improves your Continuous Delivery pipeline using fewer resources. It also helps you scale up your builds, automate tasks and speed up Jenkins performance with the benefits of Docker containerization.This book will explain the advantages of combining Jenkins and Docker to improve the continuous integration and delivery process of app development. It will start with setting up a Docker server and configuring Jenkins on it. It will then provide steps to build applications on Docker files and integrate them with Jenkins using continuous delivery processes such as continuous integration, automated acceptance testing, and configuration management.Moving on you will learn how to ensure quick application deployment with Docker containers along with scaling Jenkins using Docker Swarm. Next, you will get to know how to deploy applications using Docker images and testing them with Jenkins.By the end of the book, you will be enhancing the DevOps workflow by integrating the functionalities of Docker and Jenkins.What you will learnGet to grips with docker fundamentals and how to dockerize an application for the Continuous Delivery processConfigure Jenkins and scale it using Docker-based agentsUnderstand the principles and the technical aspects of a successful Continuous Delivery pipelineCreate a complete Continuous Delivery process using modern tools: Docker, Jenkins, and AnsibleWrite acceptance tests using Cucumber and run them in the Docker ecosystem using JenkinsCreate multi-container applications using Docker ComposeManaging database changes inside the Continuous Delivery process and understand effective frameworks such as Cucumber and FlyweightBuild clustering applications with Jenkins using Docker SwarmPublish a built Docker image to a Docker Registry and deploy cycles of Jenkins pipelines using community best practicesTable of ContentsIntroducing Continuous DeliveryDocker configurationConfiguring JenkinsContinuous Integration PipelineAutomated Acceptance TestingComplete Continuous Delivery PipelineAdvanced Continuous Delivery PipelinesScaling Jenkins with Docker SwarmBest Practices
