Fasten your seat belts: Flying the Oracle Development Cloud Service (1- Boarding)

I’ll begin new a series about my findings on working with the Oracle Development Cloud Service. I’m not sure how many post will finally be part of this series, but I guess you’ll see a couple. Before we begin lets ask the big question: What is the Oracle Oracle Development Cloud Service and what do […]


Automate the installation of a product with bash scripts

The problem I was given the repetitive task to make an archive and install the content on a machine every 3 weeks. This archive contained sql files and shell scripts. A shell script would install the product and create a database. The procedure was entirely manual and repetitive. I decided steps by steps to automate […]


JavaFX on Android with JavaFXPorts

Nowadays there is a tool that allows to deploy your JavaFX application easily and run it on Android and iOS devices (thus making the phrase “write once run everywhere” true) and it’s called JavaFXPorts. I’ve encountered a few small issues while experimenting with this tool and researching on the internet I came to the conclusion […]


Displaying Paths in Ant

via Inspired by Actual Events: Displaying Paths in Ant.

In the blog posts Java and Ant Properties Refresher and Ant <echoproperties /> Task, I wrote about how being able to see how properties are seen by an Ant build can be helpful in understanding that build better. It is often the case that it’d also be valuable to see various paths used in the build as the build sees them, especially if the paths are composed of other paths and pieces from other build files. Fortunately, as described in theStackOverflow thread Ant: how to echo class path variable to a file, this is easily done with Ant’s PathConvert task.

Open Source Tools for Java Deployment

Open Source Tools for Java Deployment

Step up your game on projects of any size.

Continuous deployment is a set of automation practices that reduces lead time and improves the reliability, quality, and overhead of software releases. Implementing continuous deployment requires some work, but it has a very positive impact on a project. By establishing a sound deployment pipeline and keeping all of your environments—from development to test to production—as similar as possible, you can drastically reduce risks in the development process and make innovation, experimentation, and sustained productivity easier to achieve.

Developers are usually aware of the basic building blocks for deployment: code repositories, such as Git and Subversion; and build tools, including Ant, Maven, and Gradle. But what other tools can help you step up?

In this article, we present seven open source tools that you can use right now to improve the deployment process on projects big or small. These tools are among the best and most-used tools in their areas; they attract developers who have created a large body of knowledge, plugins, and connectors that can be used in a wide range of situations and integrated with other tools and processes.

But more importantly, these tools can dramatically improve your deployments. They can empower your team to build better and more-innovative software in a less stressful environment.
