To greatly increase your productivity as a developer, Jelastic provides you with the possibility to set periodical automatic deployment of your project and, in such a way, ensure its continuous integration to the corresponding application server. Such re-deploys take place based on the changes that were applied to the appropriate remote repository, thus you can simply work via the the preferred Git/SVN service, without ever leaving it.Just update your code, make a commit and all the changes in your VCS project will be automatically pushed to your production environment, after the stated time interval.
And as a distinction from Git hooks, the Jelastic auto-deploy feature does not require any additional configurations on the Git repository side and works with SVN. So, let’s discover how to get it! Note that Java environments require an additional Maven node for building and pushing the code to the appropriate application server, while for the rest of the languages this mechanism is handled by the corresponding compute nodes themselves.We’ll consider this on the example of Maven build node for Java - however, any other application server can be configured similarly.2.
Svn Automatic Update After Commit Change
Once your environment is created, click the Add project button next to the appropriate node (i.e. Maven for Java or your application server for any other language)3. In the opened window, switch to the tab with the type of VCS used and fill in the required fields: insert the URL to the necessary repository, specify the authentication details and designate the name for the Context your application should be placed at.Also, in case of a Maven build node usage, you need to additionally specify the Name for your project and Environment it is intended to be deployed to.
Now, as all the crucial for deployment information is stated, you may proceed to configuring the automatic updating of your project.1. Tick the Check and auto-deploy updates line to enable it and get the corresponding section expanded.The Check every (min) option will be revealed, which is used to define the frequency of checking the repository for new commits, pushed since the last verification.As you can easily guess from the option name, it is stated in minutes. Thus, if you set, for example, a 1 minute interval, the check will be done every minute, and if you specify a 1440 minute interval - the check will be done once per day. Note:.
if the verification interval is smaller than the time needed to build and deploy the project, the next task will wait in a queue until these operations are completed. in case your application server layer contains several nodes, please also consider the on their update sequence2. As a result of these configurations (which, despite of a long description, take less than a minute to specify), if there were any changes made at the application sources, they will be automatically built and deployed (for Java projects) or just applied through updating the project (for the rest of the languages) once per the specified period of time.Click Add for confirmation. Tip: You are also able to re-configure your deployed via Git/SVN app’s settings by navigating to your environment and selecting the Edit button next to the appropriate project. You’ll see the frame opened, similar to the one that was used for the project addition, where you can change the state for any of the options, described above (just click on Apply to confirm the new settings).That’s all! Just make these simple configurations while adding your project to the Jelastic Cloud and feel free to continue working with your code through Git/SVN repository, without having to come back to our dashboard again.
Svn Commit All Changes
Rest assured that everything will stay up-to-date on your production, automatically!
Svn Automatic Update After Committing
Ever made that commit that messed up your repository and spent some time wondering how to undo, or revert a bad commit? In subversion you really can’t go back a revision, but you can merge your copy with the previous repository version and then commit the changes to correct your mistakes:svn merge -r currentversion:previousversion repositoryurlsvn commit -m “Reverting previous commit and going back to revision previousversion.”This is a life saver ðŸ™‚UPDATE: Julian found a ‘typo’ on this post. Thanks Julian!UPDATE 2: I found a horrible typo on one of my comments. Phew ðŸ˜› Anyway, I am glad that this post is helping people to resolve their problems ðŸ˜‰. Note that recent versions of subversion have added the -c shortcut to select one particular revision number. So the command can now be shortened to:svn merge -c -badrevision repositoryurlNote the ‘-‘ vefore the revision number.
It’s important.-c y is equivalent to -r x:y-c -y is equivalent to -r y:xWe want the second variant here.Extra tips:(i) Note that reverting this way won’t restore your local copies to what they were before. It’ll revert them to previousversion. So you may want to make copies of your changed files before you do the revert.(ii) Don’t forget the handy ‘–dry-run’ flag if you are not sure you have got the command right.
Svn will report what the command is going to do, but it won’t actually make any changes to your repo or local copy.(iii) If, when you try to revert, you get a warning such as:Skipped missing target: ‘somepath’it means you have may have missed the branch part off your URL. You probably need to add a “/trunk” or a “/branches/yourbranchname”. For example:instead of. This saved me from an insane situation!
Thank you!I’ve been doing Git code management on my local machine and doing git svn dcommit’s to sync my SVN server. Never Do This On A Flaky Internet Connection! I was using my phone’s wifi hotspot when I only had a half a bar and the commit push to SVN died half-way!
A disaster because the commit got to SVN but was never linked back to my Git repo and I couldn’t for the life of me get them back into an appropriate state.Checking out my SVN trunk separately, running your merge above, and then git svn rebase’ing again before committing saved my (code)life!
