Agenda<br />What is Continuous Integration and why do I need it?<br />How do I set it up?<br />How do I extend it to meet my needs in the future?<br />
Question<br />Are you using a form of source control such as Subversion, CVS, Perforce etc?<br />
Running tests is boring<br />So Running tests manually is boring and you forget.<br />Tests break and you don’t know which change broke what.<br />The longer it takes your to discover a test failure the longer it will take to find the root cause and fix it.<br />So if your too bored to run the tests who will?<br />An Intern? The pointy haired boss? Or… <br />
Your Development Cycle: <br /><ul><li>Multiple team members check in code to your version control system
Have a robot integrate your team’s changes and run your tests to make sure they are compatible.
If they are compatible release the changes to a test org
If they are not compatible and tests fail alert the person who broke the tests and optionally the team. </li></li></ul><li>O.K I’m interested. <br /><ul><li>Most popular Continuous Integration server in use today is called “Jenkins”.
Open Source with a rich set of plugin’s available to extend it’s functionality.
They went with the “butler” metaphor instead of “robots” in their Logo but otherwise I recommend it</li></li></ul><li>Moving Parts <br />Source Control Repository (Subversion, CVS, perforce etc)<br />force.com migration tool<br />Email Notification<br />
Lets go Shopping<br />We need to download the following:<br />Java JDK http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java<br />Apache Ant http://ant.apache.org<br />Force.com Migration tool (via the Setup menu)<br />Jenkins http://jenkins-ci.org/<br />
What’s with all this software?<br />You came to the cloud to get away from installing software. <br />The good news is your actual tests will execute in the cloud using salesforce.com servers for the heavy lifting.<br />No need for a beefy build server<br />Proof: Win XP VM with 1 GB RAM<br />
