Continuous Deployment - use atlas sdk to start a confluence instance out of the CI server

Joachim Seibert Nov 22, 2012

For our Continuous Deployment Pipeline we need to start a confluence instance in a specific version with the developers database (test-resources) from the version control system.

So we thought to use the Atlassian SDK ("atlas-run") for this as follows:

If first test stage is successfull (unit tests), CI-Server starts the confluence instance (atlas-run) and deploys the actual version of the plugin to it. Than selenium tests are applied to this instance. Afterwards the confluence instance has to be stopped.

But for this to work properly, atlas-run needs to be used in a kind of daemon mode (run in background).

How can we do this? Are we on the right way or re there better ways to achieve this?

Hi J,

From what you're describing it sounds like the Atlassian SDK's built-in support for integration testing will provide the functionality you need. It's flexible enough that you should be able to do most of the configuration in your pom.xml, and have your CI server run the whole integration test run (including setup & tear down of Confluence) with a single call to atlas-integration-test.
