Jenkins - the world’s most popular open source continuous integration software

Jenkins is the world’s most popular open source continuous integration software, with more
than 65,000 sites using it to deliver superior-quality products. Jenkins provides two critical
functions that help teams improve code quality:

  • Continuously build and test
  • Monitor jobs

Jenkins is widely recognized as a core tool for developers, QA engineers, project managers,
release engineers, operations and managers alike. You can set it up to watch for any code
changes in places like SVN and Git; automatically do a build with tools like Ant and Maven;
initiate tests; perform actions like roll back; and set up alerts to notify you of any issues that arise
along the way. Over the last few years, Jenkins has become the hub of the development lifecycle
and has proven to be an efficient tool to deliver superior-quality code, increase productivity and
reduce costs. Teams using agile methodology, in which continuous integration is a fundamental
practice, will find Jenkins particularly useful.
