Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) are increasingly popular DevOps practices where code changes are frequently committed to a source control management (SCM), and automatically built, tested and submitted to a release pipeline for deployment. The initial stage of the release pipeline will deploy the changes to a development environment where it can be tested.

The FlexDeploy WebLogic plugin provides operations to automate the management of domain configurations.

This file can then be the basis for a spreadsheet that can be loaded directly into FlexDeploy, through the use of templates, and all

How many times have you developed a new composite, or migrated an older composite, that simply turned into an overly complex process?  Modifying and debugging the new process can become more difficult and take longer to implement. A good java implementation breaks the problem into manageable classes that can be easily understood and managed over
