Spring Framework Concourse pipeline
The Spring Framework uses Concourse for its CI build and other automated tasks. The Spring team has a dedicated Concourse instance available at https://ci.spring.io with a build pipeline for Spring Framework 6.0.x.
Setting up your development environment
If you’re part of the Spring Framework project on GitHub, you can get access to CI management features. First, you need to go to https://ci.spring.io and install the client CLI for your platform (see bottom right of the screen).
You can then login with the instance using:
$ fly -t spring login -n spring-framework -c https://ci.spring.io
Once logged in, you should get something like:
$ fly ts name url team expiry spring https://ci.spring.io spring-framework Wed, 25 Mar 2020 17:45:26 UTC
Pipeline configuration and structure
The build pipelines are described in
This file is listing Concourse resources, i.e. build inputs and outputs such as container images, artifact repositories, source repositories, notification services, etc.
It also describes jobs (a job is a sequence of inputs, tasks and outputs); jobs are organized by groups.
pipeline.yml definition contains
parameters which are loaded from the
parameters.yml file or from our credhub instance.
You’ll find in this folder the following resources:
pipeline.ymlthe build pipeline
parameters.ymlthe build parameters used for the pipeline
images/holds the container images definitions used in this pipeline
scripts/holds the build scripts that ship within the CI container images
taskscontains the task definitions used in the main
Updating the build pipeline
Updating files on the repository is not enough to update the build pipeline, as changes need to be applied.
The pipeline can be deployed using the following command:
$ fly -t spring set-pipeline -p spring-framework-6.0.x -c ci/pipeline.yml -l ci/parameters.yml
|This assumes that you have credhub integration configured with the appropriate secrets.|
