Docker is not the only tool to work with containers
We often use Docker when we talk about containers, similar to we use ‘Coke’ when we talk about carbonated soft drink. We all know that Coke is not the only brand that sells carbonated soft drink. Same to Docker, it is not the only one that does containers.
Docker has been around for quite a while and it is a good tool. It is one of the very first thing I always tell junior developers to study when they start their first job from school.
Recenly, I feel annoying installing Docker on my different machines that I need to switch back and forth. Due to its big installation file so it is heavy weight. I normally use Docker to just build images and deploy workloads on my Kubernetes clusters and use it for nothing else. …
Updated Jan 2019: Azure Container Service (ACS) has been replaced by Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Please refer to this guide on how to easily create an AKS cluster.
1) Go to
Azure Active Directory →
App registrations and click
New application registration
What if you can do it right from your web browser from any OS without installing anything!?!
Wetty = Web + tty.
In my last blog, I’ve explained about deployment pipeline I built for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in ABAP. Another thing that our team has built was the application monitoring.
For our Java Spring Boot services, it can seamlessly integrate Prometheus module in the POM file and then your application is ready to be monitored with built-in metrics.
I managed to create Prometheus client for ABAP. I will explain how you can setup one for yours below.
In my recent project, we are building Java miniservices that connect to SAP backend via RESTful APIs. The team has setup a CI/CD pipeline in Jenkins to automate build, test, and deploy of those Java services. At the time we had the pipeline, I have realized the benefits for having such pipeline and that became my motivation to build one for ABAP.
The most important benefit in my view is the visibility over your software’s health. If someone asks whether the Java piece is working fine at the moment, we can have a glance at Jenkins monitor and be able to answer quite confidently. In ABAP, we are just blind. …
In my last blog, we’ve create a Hello Application easily without any coding and deployed it to the cloud.
In this blog, let’s explore the continuous integration and continuous delivery for the application which SAP has prepared for us a template which is ready for our use.

Introduction of Cloud Foundry on SAP Cloud Platform enables a lot of possibilities to deploy various applications on the cloud. Jenkins is one of the most asked and some people may struggle to find a place to run it.
In this blog, I’ll show how to deploy Jenkins on Cloud Foundry environment on SAP Cloud Platform.
Go to https://jenkins.io/download/ and download Generic Java Package (war) of the version you prefer.
Connect to Cloud Foundry using CLI. (See how to download here).
cf api https://api.cf.eu10.hana.ondemand.com
We’re going to deploy Jenkins.war using this special buildpack.
cf push <path_to_jenkins.war> -b https://github.com/Altoros/jenkins-buildpack -m 2G…
The introduction of S/4HANA Cloud SDK makes it even easier to develop cloud applications and integration with back-end SAP and cutting-edge tools and technologies like Hystrix, Docker, and Jenkins.
In this blog, I’m showing you how to deploying a Hello World application on SAP Cloud Foundry without any coding using S/4HANA Cloud SDK.
Make sure you have a trial account on Cloud Foundry. If not, get one from here.
Make sure your PC has the following installed:
On Windows, you can use these commands to install those softwares with Chocolatey:
choco install jdk8
choco install maven
SAP Cloud Platform supports running J2EE applications. But most develops are not building Java Web Application from EJB/Servlet any more. They rather use framework to build up their app. Spring Framework from Pivotal is a popular one which you can build rapidly with just a few lines of codes and it is open source.
Getting a Spring Boot app running on SAP Cloud Platform is not so strait-forward as the platform already provides Tomcat container and some other stuffs which interfere with Spring Boot libraries so you need to work a bit more to get them running properly on the platform. …
