Deployment: March 19, 2009

Not a complex deployment, this time. A simple J2EE EAR file to be updated, with no database scripts to worry about or configuration changes to make.

01:30–01:43 (13 minutes): We all logged onto the conference bridge, and confirmed that we were ready to go. It took longer than it was supposed to; some people joined late.

01:43–02:02 (19 minutes): We un-deployed the old version of the EAR file, and deployed the new version.

02:02–02:08 (6 minutes): We did our Sanity Testing, and ensured that the app came back online successfully.

02:08–02:16 (8 minutes): We waited for the business to join the conference call, to do their Landing Tests; we were a bit ahead of schedule, so they hadn’t been expecting to join the call this early.

02:16–02:25 (9 minutes): The client did their Landing Testing, and signed off that everything was working as it was supposed to.

Overall deployment: 01:30–02:25 (55 minutes).
