Download “The DevOps Journey - From Waterfall to Continuous Delivery” to learn learn about the importance of integrating automated testing into the DevOps workflow, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.

This JavaZone session provides an object lesson in using continuous delivery for build, test, and deployment:


The SAP ID Service is SAP's identity management system for its websites and cloud operations. The team that built it came from a background of writing web applications in Java 1.4 for an aging and proprietary platform where it took up to a week just to deploy a new release after it had passed mostly manual QA. With the SAP ID Service project starting in 2010 the team rebooted itself: we adopted Scrum and started building the SAP ID Service using a lean, modern and standards-based application server built from open source components and using Continuous Delivery for build, test and deployment. We are now at the stage where each commit leads to a build with automated test coverage via Cucumber followed by a blue/green deployment to a production-like QA landscape which is provisioned from a cloud and configured automatically using Chef. A similar deployment to production is just a couple of clicks away, and the cloud-based technology used for this also enables developers to provision their own landscapes using a simple web-based tool. This talk will describe our journey, not only sharing our experiences but also welcoming questions and stories from others in the room.
