This page provides information on the Development Team Server and how to deploy Elastic Path applications to the server. The Development Team server has the simplest possible deployment topology:
- A local MySQL database
- A local ActiveMQ Java Message Service broker
- A single Tomcat instance running all web apps
AWS (Amazon Web Service) Deployments
If you are using Amazon Web Services, consider using Elastic Path CloudOps for AWS to automate your infrastructure setup and deployment.
The basic deployment component is:
- A deployment package that is built by the
You can deploy the same package to multiple environments without changes using a "Build once, deploy anywhere" approach.
The deployment package contains:
- WAR files for all Elastic Path webapps
- Data and properties from the
Use these to update the database schema and catalog data.
- Tools - Data Population and Import and Export
- JAR files - Tomcat requirements for a database driver and Active MQ dependencies
- Tomcat installation package - If desired, install Tomcat
This section shows an overview of the deployment process in the diagram below. Typically there are two continuous integration jobs, one to build a deployment package, and the second to push to the target environment.
Configuring the Deployment Server
Verify the target server is configured as described in Prepare Infrastructure
filtering.propertiesfile. The file is in the
extensions/database/ext-data/src/main/resources/environments/dev/folder. The file is used for filtering of catalog data
Configure the following files:
Defines database connection properties and the data population environment name itself for this environment.
Defines properties required by the Data Population tool for execution in this environment; e.g. Liquibase contexts to activate for this environment.
Defines the values used when overriding property placeholders in data files for this environment.|
Deploying to Development Team Server
This section provides instructions to deploy the Development Team Server. You can deploy to the Development Team server using the following continuous integration jobs that were created in the Setting up Continuous Integration Server section.
Run the Deployment Package job and wait for it to complete.
Run the Deploy to Dev Server job and wait for it to complete.
Run the smoke test for the deployment using the following URLs:
Cortex health monitor
