Builds that rock! Java Power Tools Bootcamps 2011
Once again, I will be running the Java Power Tools Bootcamp workshop again in the first half of 2011 in Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne and London.
As usual, there will be some great new and updated material, but the big news this time round is the labs! During the new lab exercises, students interactively learn how to set up a full end-to-end Java development infrastructure, right from build scripts to continuous deployments. Some highlights include learning how to:
Build your app - Designing clean, repeatable, automated builds using Maven, including Maven 3.
Manage your binaries - using Nexus to manage both public and your own internal binary artifacts.
Test your app - learn about some more advanced automated unit, integration and acceptance testing tools and techniques.
Deploy your app - Automated deployment to different environments.
Verify your app - Integrating automated code quality and test coverage metrics into the build, using tools like Checkstyle, Findbugs, Eclipse, and Sonar, and making them work together.
Monitor your app - Continuous Integration with Hudson/Jenkins, including a host of useful tips and tricks, such as:
Integration with Subversion and Git
Grid-based testing your web apps
Best practices for integrating code quality metrics with Hudson and Sonar
Release management with Maven and Hudson
Setting up build pipelines and parameterized builds...
