Welcome to the next chapter of my CI/CD series, where we discuss possible approaches toward software development with InterSystems technologies and GitLab.
Today, let's talk about interoperability.
When you have an active interoperability production, you have two separate process flows: a working production that processes messages and a CI/CD process flow that updates code, production configuration and system default settings.
Clearly, CI/CD process affects interoperability. But questions are:
- What exactly happens during an update?
- What do we need to do to minimize or eliminate production downtime during an update?
