Jenkins Training: Continuous Integration with Maven, Jenkins and Nexus

Quick Enroll

Course#: WA2321
Courseware: Available for sale

This course will provide students with an understanding of  the Apache Maven build process, the principles of continuous integration, and the knowledge of how to implement continuous integration with automated test execution using Jenkins, Maven, and the Sonatype Nexus OSS repository manager. Students will use a local copy of Jenkins and to create and run Maven jobs, link to a version control system, run automated testing and generate development reports, and configure the system to log build reports and generated artifacts to a Nexus repository.

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.

Objectives

In this training, attendees will learn how to:

  • Download and install Maven
  • Build a project
  • Work with Maven's directory structure, plugins, repositories, and more
  • Understand the Project Object Model (POM)
  • Build a complete web application using Maven
  • Build and activate profiles
  • Use Maven from Eclipse via the m2eclipse plugin
  • 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.
  • Configure Maven and Jenkins to deploy the generated artifacts to Nexus

Audience

This course is targeted to developers who will implement Continuous Integration using Maven, Jenkins and the Nexus repository manager.  Students learn to create Maven projects, configure Jenkins to build those projects, and manage the artifacts using Nexus.

Prerequisites

Attendees should have familiarity Java development practices.
