We're currently working on the release 3.1.1. This release will have some minor changes and a few bug fixes. It will also contain an updated HTML-based User Guide.
We're also planning to implement the support for DataPower firmware version 7.0 as soon as it becomes available. This will include supporting DataPower GatewayScript and other new features.
In the meantime, you can always download DPBuddy 3.1 from this link and give it a try.
If you have any questions, suggestions or feature requests, please comment on this post. We appreciate your feedback.
You can easily automate your DataPower deployments with Jenkins and DPBuddy. DPBuddy comes with a comprehensive set of Ant tasks, so you can simply create an Ant script defining your build/deployment process and then invoke the script from Jenkins using the "Invoke Ant" build step.
You can find the details in this tutorial.
Any automated build/deployment process should be accompanied by automated testing. This is required for automated (let alone for continuous) delivery of any application. Services residing in DataPower appliances should also be covered by automated testing. This can be achieved by invoking SoapUI test cases as part of an automated deployment, after all the services have been imported. This article explains how to do it.
