This presentation highlights an integrated development process built with Jenkins and Cloud Foundry. We show a continuous delivery lifecycle from source code control (Git) to Jenkins build (Maven and Gradle) to live deployment on Cloud Foundry. We use Jenkins to do a blue/green deploy of an application by deploying two environments, then switch request routing between the two without downtime. The two versions are then load balanced, allowing for testing of the new version and easy replacement or fall back to the existing version.
