> What you want to do is have your packaged software be independent of the environment
it is deployed to. That way you know by checking the SHA1 of the artifact you can know it
was the one that was tested by QA.
> So what you do is have your application read its configuration from an external source.
> One example is you could read the configuration from the JNDI environment (if you are
deploying in a JavaEE server). Thus you can setup the dev environment with the DB servers,
etc defined in JNDI and the same for QA, PROD, etc
> Another example is you could look for a .properties file on the classpath or at a well
known location (perhaps the user home or something like that)
> The application should fail fast if any of the configuration settings are missing to
help diagnose issues.
> There are many ways to skin this cat, but rebuilding an artifact for each environment
should be considered a critical anti-pattern
