Jenkins Training: Continuous Integration with Maven, Jenkins and Nexus Training

This Jenkins course teaches attendees the Apache Maven build process, the principles of continuous integration, and how to implement continuous integration with automated test execution using Jenkins, Maven, and the Sonatype Nexus OSS repository manager.

In this course, students use a local copy of Jenkins 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.
