  • Compelling Events for Automation• Middleware Upgrades It’s great when new vendorsbring out new features - but often taking advantage ofthem takes a good deal of time and effort to upgradethe new infrastructure - and introduces risk. Automatingthe upgrade project speeds it up, reduces the risk andbuilds a more manageable platform in the future.• Migrating off ‘Premium Product’ With the economyas it is, more organizations are forced to tighten theirbelts, and one area that has come under particularscrutiny is the annual cost of maintaining installedsoftware. Some organizations have made the decisionto move less business critical applications off moreexpensive middleware onto open-source platformssuch as JBoss and Tomcat. This type of project isaccelerated when it’s automated and an automationtool makes managing hybrid or heterogeneousenvironments much easier.• Building a PAAS or a private cloud With pressureon businesses to deliver more innovation to theircustomers, faster, we see many of our customersbuilding Platforms As A Service and private clouds.These are a lot faster and quicker to set up using anautomation tool, and a lot quicker to manage demandonce they are up and running.• Core business application upgrades or migrationsMany of our customers occasionally need to upgradeor even replace their core business applications - oftencomplex, multi-layered, integrated systems that haveevolved over time and have many integration pointsand are absolutely critical to the minute by minuteoperations of the business. Using an automation toolcan reduce the risk and time associated with sucha project.• Platform migrations Sometimes it’s time to movefrom one platform to another - for instance, customerssometimes feel that a UNIX based platform willoffer them performance advantages over an OS400platform. But moving hundreds of middlewareapplications might seem like a challenge too far -without automation.• Rearchitecting Change is a constant and businessesneed to continually evolve their IT infrastructureand operations, build new environments for thingslike Disaster Recovery and automating the buildand deployment of these new environments meansdelivering them faster.Maven Insights• Implementing a DevOps process demandsintegration through the toolchain and it’sessential that your Application ReleaseAutomation tool integrates with the developmenttools and repositories your teams are using on adaily basis.RapidDeploy™ Plugin for MavenRapidDeploy™ provides organizations with Application Release Automation capabilitiesto reduce costs, improve productivity and time to value and assure compliance. Thereis a range of plugins available to extend the core automation framework capabilities tomost available platforms and perform integrations throughout the DevOps toolchain.This datasheet refers to the Maven plugin.Plugins are downloaded through the Plugin Manager console in RapidDeploy™, or from the MidVisionwebsite at www.midvision.com.RapidDeploy™ToolchainPlugins
  • Maven Plugin OverviewThis artifact plugin allows an external Maven repositoryto be used as the RapidDeploy™ artifact store. Bydefault, RapidDeploy™ comes with a FileSystemplugin that allows you to store deployable artifactson a filesystem local to the RapidDeploy™ Server.This downloadable plugin allows you to use a Mavenrepository to store and retrieve artifacts. RapidDeploy™will create a local maven repository on the server(s) itis running on and will download artifacts as required.RapidDeploy™ can be set to upload new artifacts tothe repository if required. This plugin does not requireMaven to be installed on the RapidDeploy™ server.The plugin supports authentication to remote mavenrepositories and connections to the Maven repositoriesvia a proxy server.A downloadFromMaven task is also included, that allowsremote jobs to download, directly to the remote server,artifacts and optionally their dependencies from a mavenrepository as part of a deployment orchestration. Thisis useful where for example there is a requirementto obtain some artifacts at a particular version priorto performing some further action on them. In thesimplest case this might be downloading a jar file from arepository using the downloadFromMavenTask and thenrunning it via a LocalScriptRunnerTask.Maven Plugin VersionsThe RapidDeploy™ Maven plugin supports Mavenversion 2.x. and 3.xRapidDeploy™ PluginsThe RapidDeploy™ plugins extend the functionality ofthe core automation framework and are categorised inthe following way:• Toolchain plugins enabling integration with BuildEngines, Artifact repositories and Source ControlManagement tools• Transport plugins enabling use of SSH andAgent capability• Target plugins enabling connectivity with broadrange of Middleware Applications and Databases• Cloud plugins enabling connectivity to cloud providers• Business Intelligence plugins to extend theCAF including for example, enhanced comparisonfunctionality and additional reporting capabilitiesPlugins ship with:• A Library of commonly used tasks• Wizards & extensive help information• Predefined automation library elementswww.midvision.com©MidVision2013.Allrightsreserved.RapidDeploy™ToolchainPluginsWant this plugin?
