In Part 4 of this series, you will configure Jenkins for build automation, continuous integration, and continuous delivery.
In Part 5 of this series, you will refactor the monolithic source of the Daytrader3 application to microservices that you can separately manage, deploy, and scale.
In Part 1 of this series, you migrate the Daytrader3 application from IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty 220.127.116.11 to Liberty 18.104.22.168. After you migrate the application, you deploy and run it on premises. Download the original and refactored monoliths!
In Part 2, you migrate the Daytrader3 application that is running in an on-premises Liberty 22.214.171.124 server to the cloud platforms of IBM Cloud private (with Docker and Kubernetes) and IBM Cloud Public (with Cloud Foundry). This tutorial examines the necessary code changes that are required to cloud-enable the Daytrader3…
