Installing Sonar in OpenShift as a DIY application

Sonar is a popular code profiler and dashboard that excels when used along a Continuous Integration engine:

  • Seamless integration with Maven.
  • Leverages best-of-breed tools as Checkstyle, PMD or FindBugs.
  • Configurable quality profiles.
  • Re-execution of tests and test code coverage (UT, IT).
  • Design Structure Matrix analysis.
  • Flexible and highly customisable dashboard.
  • Actions plans / peer reviews.
  • Historic views / run charts.
  • Can be used with Java, .Net, C/C++, Groovy, PHP,…

The Usual Suspects – Talk in Red Hat Developer Day London, Nov 1st

On Nov 1st, I will be presenting in Red Hat Developer Day London.

The tittle of my talk is: “The Usual Suspects – Creating a Cloud Development Environment with Sonar, Selenium and JMeter on OpenShift Origin“. During the session I will show how to extend the basic development environment offered by OpenShift (Git, Maven, Jenkins) and create a more powerful environment on OpenShift featuring “usual suspects” such as Sonar for continuous quality assurance, Selenium for functional testing, JMeter for performance/load testing as well as Arquillian for in-container testing. The session includes a live demo built on OpenShift Origin.

For more information about the event, full agenda and registration, visit: http://www.redhat.com/developerday/

See you there!

Edit 2012-11-01: These are the slides for the presentation. Meanwhile they are published in the conference site I have uploaded them here: The Usual Suspects – Red Hat Developer Day 2012-11-01

 

Red Hat OpenShift: Freedom of Choice

1         Introduction

After we finished writing the post on VMware Cloud Foundry platform, it seemed natural to write a follow-up on Red Hat OpenShift. OpenShift is a Java-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering from Red Hat, the ‘giant’ of Open Source Software with a well-deserved reputation that comes from a wide range of products including operating systems (Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux), application servers / middleware (JBoss AS, JBoss ESB), frameworks (Hibernate, Seam) and tools (JBoss Tools, Arquillian).

As a PaaS offering, the ultimate goal of OpenShift is to reduce the effort needed to write and deploy highly scalable and highly available Java applications. Under your dedicated “application space” the platform components run to ensure your application is able to respond to user’s requests, but isolating your application code from the infrastructure and all the complexity usually associated with complex, distributed deployments.

Let’s jump into OpenShift!
