In this chapter, we installed and configured a Chef workstation, we converged the node, created a role, and installed the runtime environment for Java-based web applications. We also used knife plugins to create virtual machines in Microsoft Azure and Amazon EC2 and used a role to install a runtime environment.
In the next chapter, we will see how to deploy Java-based web applications into the web server in an automated way using scripts or plugins.
We will deploy our WAR file into the local or remote Tomcat. The remote Tomcat will be on Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, or Microsoft Azure Web Apps.
