Spring Cloud Pipelines to Cloud Pipelines Migration

Spring Cloud Pipelines is a GitHub project that tries to solve the following problems:

  • Creation of a common deployment pipeline

  • Propagation of good testing and deployment practices

  • Reducing the time required to deploy a feature to production.

The first commit took place on 31-08-2016. Since then, we have gotten a lot of feedback from the community related to the suggested deployment pipeline and its concrete visualisations. Over those two years, the most important features we have managed to build are:

  • Opinionated deployment pipeline setup

  • Scripts for the pipeline, to verify backward compatibility of your project and allow zero-downtime deployment

  • Support for PHP, .NET, NodeJS, and JVM (Maven & Gradle) projects

  • Deployment option for Cloud Foundry

  • Deployment option for Kubernetes

  • Deployment option via Ansible

  • Pipeline visualisation in Jenkins by using Jenkins Job DSL

  • Pipeline visualisation in Jenkins by using Jenkinsfile

  • Pipeline visualisation in Concourse

We would like to announce the next 1.0.0.M9 release of Spring Cloud Pipelines, which will also be its last in the current form.
