Continuous deployment example

ControlTier has supported the concept of continuous deployment for years and it's great that the concept is becoming increasingly main stream. 

In ControlTier, the end-to-end build and deployment process is defined via the Updater "BuildAndUpdate" workflow that orchestrates the Builder's Build and the Site's Update workflows. You can read about the basics on our Wiki here: Continuous_deployment

There's also a practical hands on example using tomcat

Of course you can also support continuous deployment by having your favorite continuous integration server interface with ControlTier after the build is completed.

ControlTier 3.4.4 Released

ControlTier 3.4.4 has been released.

This release has been focused on support for Windows in several forms:

  • Internet Explorer is now supported for the server web applications Workbench, Jobcenter, and Reportcenter. Both IE 7 and 8 are supported
  • Windows-based Examples have been added to the Wiki. See the Examples page.

Other bug fixes are also included.


Two new high-level Library Guides have been added to help you develop Tomcat and JBoss server management solutions. These guides tie together the related Type Modules that are included with ControlTier, and show how they can be used together to create a management solution.

We intend to produce these "Library" guides for each of the various technologies that ControlTier provides Type Modules for.

See the Solution Libraries Guide for the complete list of available Library Guides.
