Javaland 2017 wrap up

Yes - I did it again and attend Javaland, conference in Phantasialand Brühl. It was not easy this year to concentrate on the sessions because of the hottest march of the last 100 years. But the quality of the sessions beats the weather. Maybe again my invest in reading the abstracts and filter the sessions before the conference has payed off.


Virtual Development Server: Provide Docker images in docker registry for Oracle via Jenkins

We now try to automate the build of all needed images as soon as Oracle GitHub Sources changed or we need to build our Vagrant VirtualBox again from scratch.


Virtual Development Server: Install Jenkins for Continuos Integration / Delivery / Deployment

For automation of all of my processes I need Jenkins in my development server. First I had installed Jenkins as Docker container via Vagrant Docker provider. But with this architecture it was very complicated to create docker images and run Docker containers on the Docker host, in this case my Vagrant Virtualbox. So for simplification I have decided to install Jenkins with the provisioning of the Vagrant Virtualbox via a shell provider in my Vagrantfile.


Virtual Development Server: Provide Docker images in docker registry for Oracle XE Database and others

For later creation of containers as needed in the deployment process we have first to build docker images whenever we do not find suitable one in docker hub.


Virtual Development Server: Add swapfile to VirtualBox as requirement for installing Oracle or build Oracle docker images

Virtual Development Server: Add enough ram and disk space to VirtualBox for further server components

As I want later build docker images and run docker containers I have to provide enough ram and disk space for this. Per default the Vagrantboxes have vmdk disks, these have a static size and are to small for my purposes.


Virtual Development Server: Creating Virtualbox machine including docker containers with Vagrant

As I want to decouple my development server from my computer as much as possible I want to create first a virtual machine with linux.
