I have been working with Java EE technologies since 2000. After implementing IBM WebSphere and custom framework solutions, my past 10 years have been focused on Oracle Fusion Middleware such as WebLogic, ADF, WebCenter and Coherence. I have been part of many automation projects in the past and have a passion for automation capabilities to help our customers deliver software faster and with higher quality. In my current role as a Principal Architect at Flexagon, I am driving the FlexDeploy product strategy and development to build DevOps/CI/CD features that help our customers.

While working with many FlexDeploy customers on DevOps for middleware and enterprise applications, I have noticed that organizations setup a multitude of Git repositories and each repository is used to store source code for many artifacts. For example, one Git repository may contain a few integration composites, service bus projects, application server configurations etc., and

FlexDeploy utilizes SSH for communicating to remote endpoints. For Microsoft Windows, Cygwin is required to provide the Unix-like environment containing the required SSH libraries. Install and setup of Cygwin is defined at FlexDeploy Cygwin Install Guide. In this blog, I will describe use of COPSSH instead of Cygwin. Reference from https://itefix.net/copssh – Copssh is an

In previous post, I talked about Automated deployments to GlassFish application server. Payara is open source application server derived from GlassFish, so basically FlexDeploy GlassFish plugin works with Payara as well. I have installed Payara on my laptop using zip download. Payara can be started using “asadmin” command line utility, but in my case I

We previously posted blog entry No Plugin? No Problem! to demonstrate deployment to GlassFish using FlexDeploy Shell plugin. In addition, our customers and partners have been developing plugins using the FlexDeploy Plugin SDK. These options demonstrate the flexibility that can be achieved when using FlexDeploy. At the same time, FlexDeploy comes with many out of the
