You have a given SOA composite that was developed in JDeveloper and the source code is managed in a GIT repository. The goal of the tutorial is to automate the deployment of the composite across multiple environments. This automation will include:
- cloning the composite from a GIT repository
- compiling and packaging the composite into a SAR file
- deploying the SAR file to multiple environments
- utilizing a global config plan to adjust environment specific URLs as deployments progress through the environments
We will walk through each of the FlexDeploy features that will be created/configured to accomplish this goal and have the composite deployed in a very short amount of time.
The tutorial does not cover every feature or configuration option available in FlexDeploy.
A Docker image containing a fully configured FlexDeploy instance for this tutorial is available here. Be sure to select the appropriate tag based the version of the tutorial. This image includes FlexDeploy running on Tomcat and an Oracle XE database with the completed configuration described in this tutorial. The configuration is pointing to private SOA endpoints which you will not have access to. You can review the configuration without executing, or use the tutorial as a reference to configure endpoints pointing to your own SOA instances.
