As one of the fundamental backbones of DevOps, a CI/CD pipeline can provide many strategic advantages for your organization. In the 2016 release of Adobe ColdFusion, we first introduced Docker Image which made cloud-based applications, modern methodologies and automated development pipelines a reality. DevOps started to gain popularity and developers were able to speed up development, secure their codes and deploy in an automated step. Further, Adobe ColdFusion 2018 made it significantly easier to deploy complex cloud architecture, microservices, and in general non-monolithic apps.
There are many tools that can be used when setting up a pipeline and Adobe ColdFusion 2021 has made it possible to move into the DevOps world with even lesser resistance. The brand new release has some incredible developments and is packed with new features that simplify many steps of the CI/CD pipeline. CI/CD has become a mainstream software practice, and while Adobe ColdFusion has always had the ability to be plugged into a pipeline, the 2021 release has made this task seamless.
While the process of adopting DevOps principles can be hard, it gives organizations the chance to alleviate broken processes, revamp legacy code, empower teams, and reduce the boring parts of coding and deployments. You can choose to use a CI server, any type or version control, or a software to specifically test your builds when proceeding with the implementation of a pipeline and ColdFusion based applications.
Brian Sappey created the white paper which would help ColdFusion developers to learn what CF 2021 has to offer when exploring a CI/CD pipeline. Also know how enhancements like the package manager, command line capabilities, performance monitoring, API manager, enhanced security, and cloud integrations would enable CF customers to move seamlessly into the Continuous Integration pipeline.
