You need to recommend an integration strategy for the build process of a Java application. The solution must meet the following requirements:
The builds must access an on-premises dependency management system.
The build outputs must be stored as Server artifacts in Azure DevOps.
The source code must be stored in a Git repository in Azure DevOps.
Solution: Configure an Octopus Tentacle on an on-premises machine. Use the Package Application task in the build pipeline.
Does this meet the goal?
Octopus Deploy is an automated deployment server that makes it easy to automate deployment of ASP.NET web applications, Java applications, NodeJS application and custom scripts to multiple environments.
Octopus can be installed on various platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux. It can also be integrated with most version control tools including VSTS and GIT.
When you deploy software to Windows servers, you need to install Tentacle, a lightweight agent service, on your Windows servers so they can communicate with the Octopus server.
When defining your deployment process, the most common step type will be a package step. This step deploys your packaged application onto one or more deployment targets.
When deploying a package you will need to select the machine role that the package will be deployed to.
