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 project changes and make 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 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 they break. Jenkins keeps those outputs and makes it easy to notice when something is wrong.

This Jenkins 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 to create and run jobs, link to a version control system, run automated testing, and generate development reports.


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 deploy software into a testing environment automatically.


Attendees should have familiarity with Java development practices.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is a popular continuous integration tool written in Java that runs on top of servlet containers such as Apache Tomcat. Some of the Software Configuration Management (SCM) tools it supports include CVS, Subversion, Git, Perforce, and Clearcase, among others. The environment is highly scriptable, with support for Apache Ant, Apache Maven, shell scripts, and Windows batch commands.

What are the Benefits to Using Jenkins?

Some of the benefits of Jenkins include:

  • Building/testing software projects continuously. Jenkins provides an easy-to-use continuous integration system, making it easier for developers to integrate changes to their projects project, and for end users to obtain a fresh build. Development productivity is greatly increased by this automatic, continuous build process.
  • Monitoring executions of externally-run jobs, whether locally or remotely, including cron and procmail jobs. For example, you might use cron to generate regular e-mails that capture output, and it is up to you to look at them diligently and notice when a break has occurred. Jenkins stores these email outputs and makes it easy for you to immediately identify issues.
