We’ve just added another plugin to the Atlassian Marketplace and it’s one that should please fans of Continuous Integration.
This latest plugin lets Bamboo users manage web application deployment onto a WebSphere Application Server instance automatically, from within a Bamboo build. Using the Continuous Integration tool, users can deploy an application, undeploy, start, stop or perform other admin tasks.
Because the plugin can be configured to push commands through automatically, you’re essentially removing an extra manual administrative task from the WebSphere side.
We think there’s value in this sort of integration plugin, especially when you consider it as part of a complete end-to-end process linking back to tools like Stash, Crucible and JIRA.
If you’d like to try the plugin, or read more about the technical specs, just head over to the Atlassian Marketplace.
