This workshop will cover basics of DevOps and CI/CD concepts, and how OpenEdge customers can leverage them into their build processes. We will then dive deep into how OpenEdge DevOps Framework (OEDF) enables building of an OpenEdge application in a seamless, modern, optimized and automated way.
OEDF provides Gradle plugins that helps manage dependencies, compile ABL code, package artifacts and unit test programs. Gradle is one of the most popular choice for build and automation tool nowadays. It has a mature ecosystem and can be easily integrated to any CI server.
In this workshop we will do hands-on on how we can build OpenEdge application using OEDF and Gradle and we will discuss various benefits of investing into having a CI/CD process with live examples. We will also review how you can integrate CI in containers in your DevOps environment.
