When I read that Bitbucket Server is going to be discontinued in the future, I could have done two things. I could have waited as I could still use Bitbucket Server for quite a long time or I could go out and search for a new solution. I did the latter. Well, at least the searching part. I am still trying to find the best solution.
I am still trying to work with Bitbucket Cloud, but I am running into some issues:
- I am still not very pleased with having to put the credentials for my Nexus server into someone’s web application.
- Pipelines in Bitbucket Cloud aren’t very fast.
- Creating a Docker image with the spring-boot-maven-plugin fails at this time and it seems this problem isn’t going to be fixed any time soon.
I’d better have a look at gitlab and see what it can do for me, but there’s a good chance I’ll stick with Bitbucket Cloud and my own Jenkins server. More on that later.
