Automated deployment with Maven and friends

March 11, 2012

I’m busy with an automated deployment configuration task and stumbled upon the following excellent presentation by John Ferguson Smart from Wakaleo Consulting: Automated deployment with Maven and friends – Going the whole nine yards

If I can add some context to labelling the presentation as excellent. In essence it represents what I regard as best practices. Setting up the mentioned infrastructure takes time, but WILL save time and money in the long run. Here are some other reasons why I advocate the use of the practices outlined in the presentation:

  • I’ve had the misfortune of a three month stint as a human continuous integration / deployment “Jenkins” in the early days of a large scale enterprise project, this has left me scarred and obsessed with automated deployment and subsequent testing.
  • I’ve seen Liquibase replicated many times, at considerable expense.
  • If you don’t set it all up early in a project, you will pay for it with wasted time, one way or the other.
