Jenkins is a Java-based open-source automation tool with plugins designed for ongoing integration. Jenkins is used to constantly develop and test software projects that help developers to incorporate project modifications and make it simpler for users to achieve a new build. The Jenkins allows developers to quickly locate and resolve flaws in a code base and to automatically test their structures. Jenkins can be changed and expanded readily on all operating platforms and various devices, whether OS X, Windows or Linux. It immediately deploys code, produces test reports. During integration and continuous delivery, Jenkins can be configured according to the demands.
