Building a Jenkins Pipeline
Jenkins Pipelines allows you to treat all of your build logic as code. You can also integrate your build into a larger automated process that includes things like automated deployment. Pipelines are especially useful as you transition from doing CI to doing CI CD. In this exercise, you will build a simple pipeline for a sample application. You will gain a basic familiarity with how a Jenkins Pipeline is created and how to implement simple build logic within a pipeline.
Table of Contents
Create a new Multibranch Pipeline project in Jenkins called train-schedule.
In Jenkins, click on New Item. For the item name, type train-schedule, and select Multibranch Pipeline. Then click the OK button.
Successfully build the master branch of the train-schedule pipeline project.
Fork this project in GitHub: https://github.com/ACloudGuru-Resources/cicd-pipeline-train-schedule-pipelines
On the master branch, create a Jenkinsfile. In the Jenkinsfile, create a stage that executes the gradle build with
./gradlew build --no-daemonand archives the dist/trainSchedule.zip artifact.
Configure the train-schedule multibranch pipeline project in Jenkins to build the source code from your GitHub fork and execute the build on the master branch successfully. This should produce the dist/trainSchedule.zip archived artifact.
What's a lab?
Hands-on Labs are real environments created by industry experts to help you learn. These environments help you gain knowledge and experience, practice without compromising your system, test without risk, destroy without fear, and let you learn from your mistakes. Hands-on Labs: practice your skills before delivering in the real world.
