Training

This Continuous Integration with Jenkins training course provides training on the Jenkins Continuous Integration system. Students will install Jenkins on a Windows machine, create Jenkins jobs, setup Jenkins user-authentication, and explore commonly-used Jenkins plugins.

Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron. Among those things, current Jenkins focuses on the following two jobs:

  • Building/testing software projects continuously.  Jenkins provides an easy-to-use so-called continuous integration system, making it easier for developers to integrate changes to the project, and making it easier for users to obtain a fresh build. The automated, continuous build increases development productivity.
  • Monitoring executions of externally-run jobs, such as cron jobs and procmail jobs, even those that are run on a remote machine. For example, with cron, all you receive is regular e-mails that capture the output, and it is up to you to look at them diligently and notice when it broke. Jenkins keeps those outputs and makes it easy for you to notice when something is wrong.

This course will provide students with an understanding of the principles of continuous integration, and the knowledge of how to implement continuous integration with automated test execution using Jenkins.  Students will use a local copy of Jenkins and to create and run jobs, link to a version control system, run automated testing and generate development reports.


Objectives

In this training, attendees will learn how to:

  • Install and configure Jenkins in a servlet container
  • Create Jenkins builds
  • Configure and use Apache Ant and Apache Maven with Jenkins
  • Use Jenkins to generate Java coding standards reports, code coverage reports, and change notices

Use Jenkins to automatically deploy software into a testing environment.
