Using Liberty for DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and Deployment

Book Description

This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides an example approach for an agile IT team to implement DevOps capabilities in their software delivery of a Java application. We introduce several tools that show how teams can achieve transparency, traceability, and automation in their application lifecycle to all of the stakeholders to deliver a high-quality application that meets its initial requirements. The application that is built highlights the composable and dynamic nature of the Liberty run time. The Liberty run time helps developers to get their applications up and running quickly by using only the programming model features that are required for their applications.

The target audience for this book is IT developers, IT managers, IT architects, project managers, test managers, test developers, operations managers, and operations developers.
