Cruise Control: Automated Continuous Integration and Build Process

The next Tampa JUG's meeting will explore the topic of Automated Continuous Integration and Build process. This referes to a practice where code is rebuilt and tested frequenty throughout the software lifecycle. Problems are detected early and frequent since the process makes available a buildable code base at all time. Aside from generating builds, today's automated tools can generate documentation, web pages, code statistics and code analysis.

In the September meeting, Application Architect Joshua Davis will present Cruise Control, an open source tool for continuous integration. You will learn how to integration Ant, Cobertura, Junit, and IVY with Cruise Control to create a continuous integration and build system that simplifies and automate the build and testing cycle.
