Super Fast Tomcat Installation using FTP and Version Control

via Captain Debug’s Blog: Super Fast Tomcat Installation using FTP and Version Control.

When talking about Continuous Delivery one of the tests that both Martin Fowler and Jez Humble often mention is their “flame thrower” test. It goes something like this: Jez will say “How long would it take you to get up and running if Martin and I went into your machine rooms armed with flame throwers and axes and started attacking your servers”?

The answer, of course, should be: “oh about an hour – right after we’ve put the fire out, swept up the mess, found some new servers, plugged them in and contacted our top flight lawyers so that we can sue you for criminal damage”. Most of the time this isn’t the case as deployment is all too often a manual process, with the guy doing the installation simply following a list of instructions written in a Word document. And what is a list of instructions? A computer program. Now, hands up everyone who likes writing Word documents. Okay, now hands up everyone who likes writing code… In your imagination, you should see a room full of people voting for writing code, so why is it that when there are opportunities for writing deployment scripts do we prefer (or get lumbered with) writing Word documents? It must be more fun, productive and cost effective to write scripts that do our deployment for us in seconds rather than writing Word documents and then do every deployment ourselves.

via Tomcat 8 on Java 8 Behind Apache on CentOS.

Tomcat 8 on Java 8 Behind Apache on CentOS – I was recently asked by an associate of mine to deploy a Spring application to a CentOS server running cPanel/WHM and Apache.

Securing your Tomcat app with SSL and Spring Security

via Captain Debug’s Blog: Securing your Tomcat app with SSL and Spring Security.

If you’ve seen my last blog, you’ll know that I listed ten things that you can do with Spring Security. However, before you start using Spring Security in earnest one of the first things you really must do is to ensure that your web app uses the right transport protocol, which in this case is HTTPS – after all there’s no point in having a secure web site if you’re going to broadcast your user’s passwords all over the internet in plain text. To setup SSL there are three basic steps…

Deploy your application to OpenShift

OpenShift provides free Tomcat application server hosting, which could be useful for hosting a demo application. Deploying a web application can be done in many ways.

So you have your executable web application in JAR with bundled Tomcat (make sure to read that one first). However there are these annoying Tomcat logs at the beginning, independent from our application logs and not customizable:
