DevOps for Java Developers Workshop

Aug 5, 2021 · Manchester, United Kingdom

Do you have a private project, an open-source tool, or want to do a POC? Do you already have the idea in mind and do you wish to get started? Are you looking for a suitable environment so that you get the best possible support for your development?

JFrog offers you just the right tools for this and access to the JFrog Platform is free! With Artifactory, Xray, and more, a complete DevSecOps environment is at your disposal.

In this workshop, I will show you the individual components step by step and help you set them up for your project. This workshop is divided into several parts, and each deals with a specific section of the development.

In the basic module, we will set up a Java project based on maven consisting of one module so that you can get started.

Prerequisite Requirements:

Sign up for the JFrog Free Tier Cloud Account (No Credit Card required):
The JFrog Command Line Interface (CLI)

Information on the JFrog CLI and download instructions are available here:

You will learn how to set up and configure the Jfrog CLI for your project during this workshop.

An Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
You need an IDE that supports Java and Maven. I personally use and recommend IntelliJ. The free version is perfect for this workshop. But you can use whatever IDE fits your needs.
That said, to have IDE Support for the Xray Plugin from JFrog, please choose from the following IDEs listed here:

You need Docker on your machine for some parts of this tutorial, but it is possible to skip this element during the workshop.

Java and Maven
This tutorial is based on Java version 8 or higher and Maven. Any JDK will be fine to use, but choose a Maven version higher than 3.3.


The tutorial will take approximately 2 hours in total.

Agenda - The Bird’s Eye View:

Intro into the JFrog Platform

Demo - How to create a repository

Maven and the HelloWorld

Vulnerabilities and how to visualize them
