Chapter 13. Build and Deployment
13.1. Introduction to Deployment
The application deployment process involves making any required changes to the application code, committing those changes to the local repository, and then updating the remote repository. Application files are stored in the local Git repository that was cloned when the application was created.
The deployment process uses the application's storage space as part of the build and test process. This means that the running application must be shut down so that its memory can be utilized. Therefore, the application is not available for the duration of the build.
The following table outlines and describes the associated tasks of the deployment process.
