Automate Deployment to CloudHub using CloudHub Deployer Plugin Jenkins

Introduction

We live in an age, Where DevOps and automation are becoming more and more necessary and important in projects. So uploading packages manually to servers or platforms is not feasible and salable when you work with architecture like micro-services. So to tackle this problem we need to implement Continuous Delivery and Deployment cycle in our project. In this post I will be showing you how to do exactly that with Mule applications.

After creating a basic Mule App, you might be wondering how to automate the process of deploying a Mule App to CloudHub. In this post, I will be introducing a Jenkins plugin(Github Repository) that I published recently that enables this use case.

How it is compared to other solution/tools available with Jenkins:

Mule-Maven plugin - With this approach you are tight coupling you build and deploy process and most of time its not good. And its hard to scale this approach when you have multi environment deployment and many applications to manage. This approach will not work if you just want to do deployment.

This approach will take time and effort to get working automation that meets your project requirement. The CloudHub Deployer plugin itself is built using same API why re-invent the wheel.

What we will accomplish here:

Jenkins release pipeline using both free style and pipeline script that automates your mule application deployment to CloudHub.

Prerequisites:

  1. You will need to have Jenkins instance up and running.
  2. A CloudHub account.
  3. You need to have a already built package to follow along. Since I am not covering CI(Continuous Integration) for mule apps, there are plenty article on internet for that.

Xcode 12 deployment target warnings when use CocoaPods

The Installer is responsible of taking a Podfile and transform it in the Pods libraries. It also integrates the user project so the Pods libraries can be used out of the box.

The Installer is capable of doing incremental updates to an existing Pod installation.

The Installer gets the information that it needs mainly from 3 files:

- Podfile: The specification written by the user that contains
 information about targets and Pods.
- Podfile.lock: Contains information about the pods that were previously
 installed and in concert with the Podfile provides information about
 which specific version of a Pod should be installed. This file is
 ignored in update mode.
- Manifest.lock: A file contained in the Pods folder that keeps track of
 the pods installed in the local machine. This files is used once the
 exact versions of the Pods has been computed to detect if that version
 is already installed. This file is not intended to be kept under source
 control and is a copy of the Podfile.lock.
The Installer is designed to work in environments where the Podfile folder is under source control and environments where it is not. The rest of the files, like the user project and the workspace are assumed to be under source control.

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.

Jenkins Automated Deployment - What is it and how to automate?

We know that Deployment is one of the significant parts of the software development life cycle, using which the application/component can be made available for testing(by deploying on test servers) and finally to the end-users(by deploying on the production server). However, with the increase in the frequency of the releases, it is becoming very cumbersome to deploy all these releases manually, so it raises a dire need for automated deployment. Being one of the most used tools for the integrations and deployments in the CI/CD pipelines, Jenkins provides the capabilities to automate these frequent deployments based on specific triggers and conditions. Hence, we refer to them as Jenkins Automated Deployment. Let’s understand the concept of Jenkins automated deployments in more detail and understand how to achieve the same with the help of Jenkins by covering the details mentioned in the following topics:

  • What is automated deployment?
  • Why is automated deployment needed?
  • How to achieve automated deployment using Jenkins?
  • How to install a deployment plugin?
  • And, how to add deployment steps to Jenkins jobs?

What is automated deployment?

Automated deployment is a practice that allows us to fully ship the code automatically or semi-automatically across various development stages ranging from initial development through production. Automated deployment makes out deployments more efficient and reliable. This functionality is automated as much as possible to ensure there is no broken functionality in the path that code takes from development to production.

Automated deployment requires something called a “deployment pipeline” – a process of taking code from a version control environment like GIT and making it available to the end-users automatically.

We can classify the Automated Deployment into the following approaches or categories, according to the level of automation coverage across environments:

  • Continuous Integration: Using the Continuous Integration approach, we integrate the code changes daily. Each of this integration is to be verified automatically and tested to detect possible errors.
  • Continuous Delivery: Continuous Delivery is the practice of keeping the build or code ready to be deployed at any time. We can view Continuous Delivery as an extension of the continuous integration wherein it automates the release to the staging environment. Using Continuous Delivery, we can ensure a “production-ready” version of the build at any time.
  • Continuous Deployment: Using the Continuous Deployment approach, we fully automate the entire process of the deployment pipeline. Using this approach, we deploy every small change in the source to the production automatically. Although this approach is the quickest deployment approach, it can also cause downtim e because of errors.
