A Roadmap for SOA Development and Delivery by Mark Nelson
By Juergenkress-Oracle on Jan 23, 2014
This post is part of a series on SOA Development and Delivery.
In this post I will present a roadmap and a target state for SOA Development and Delivery. This will serve as the basis for an extended open ‘proof of concept’ that we will work through together, over a series of posts, to implement and prove this approach.
Let’s talk first about our target state – the goal we want to achieve, then we will come back and look at the steps on the journey.
The Vision – Continuous Delivery
Continuous Delivery is a set of practices, supported by tools and automation, that is focused on answering the question: ‘How much risk is associated with deploying this new change into production?’
It involves automation of everything that needs to happen between a developer committing a change and the release of the software including that change into production, including:
- building the software
- testing the software, and
- managing the configuration of the environments
The outcome that we want to achieve, is that we can automate all of our:
- component-level test
- environment provisioning (for development, test and production environments), and
- acceptance test
