Continuous Integration With Hudson

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The way traditional development environment works, the code from different developers may be developed in isolation for relatively long periods of time. Due to this, any code integration issues crop up much later than when the code was actually written. This adds to complexity of the issue and makes it really challenging to identify and solve than if they were discovered early in the cycle. To tackle this problem, continuous integration, or CI, a new development technique was created. This technique integrates and tests the code from multiple developers together early in the development process or even during the process. This helps to detect integration issues as soon as the code causing the problems is developed. This early detection helps developers in rectifying the problem before they become more complex, more difficult, and more expensive to diagnose and resolve. This paper explains the basics of installing and configuring the Hudson continuous integration engine. This is done with the aim to continuously build and test Oracle Application Development Framework applications with ease. The writer of the paper picked Hudson due to its popularity and also because it boasts of a large user community as well as a wide variety of plug-ins. This system is also quite easy to set up and configure.
