Vagrant for JEE Developer at #JEEConf

There is a presentation from my speech at JEEConf regarding Vagrant and it’s practical usage for JEE developer – http://www.slideshare.net/IzzetMustafaiev/simplify-jee-project-env-configuration-with-vagrant

In several words by using Vagrant and some provisioning tools, for example, Chef we can decrease routine to setting up development environments.

As for benefits:

  • development environment is like production
  • usage  of same set of recipes to set up testing or staging environments
  • effortless creation and destroying of env
  • easy sharing changes with testing team
  • less time spent on env configuration due to automation

In some time at JEEConf site will be a video from and if you’re interested you can check it out.
