(Chapter 22 – Section 2)
SOA Suite and Fusion Middleware provide support for enterprises that adopt continuous integration techniques to develop applications. This support ranges from integration with source code control systems such as Subversion and Git, the ability to perform operations such as compile, package and deploy from the command line in a way that can easily be scripted and features to parametrize the deployment packages. Most of the support for continuous integration hinges on use of and integration with Maven.
In this section, we will use Maven to automate the build process of SOA Suite artifacts – from compilation to deployment. In the next section, we will introduce the mechanisms for environment specific customization. The scope of this book does not allow an introduction of Maven and all it entails. The book’s website provides some references to resources that can help you get started.
The sources for the final situation for this section are found in the folders under ch22.
