Jenkins The Butler Now Serving On uberSVN

Apache Subversion-based software provider WANdisco has partnered with Java-centric cloud company CloudBees. The new union of the two firms is designed to offer the Jenkins open source continuous integration (build) server via WANdisco's uberSVN application lifecycle management (ALM) platform.

Project managers can download Jenkins, which comes packaged together with enterprise support, from the new WANdisco uberApps Store.

Note: By way of additional definition, the website clarifies that Jenkins CI is a leading open-source continuous integration server. "Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project."

Nattily named with a stereotypical English butler moniker, Jenkins is a continuous integration system to manage and control the application development lifecycle, also encompassing the including build, documentation, testing, and packaging phases.

This product can watch for code changes in uberSVN repositories and automatically do builds, initiate tests, notify users, roll changes backward or forward, schedule, monitor, and manage external time-based cron jobs, and perform operations on remote machines.

"WANdisco is committed to pairing uberSVN with best-of-breed software and services, so we are excited to offer the Jenkins build server as a critical component of our open ALM platform, together with enterprise support," said David Richards, WANdisco President and CEO.

"Jenkins is fast becoming the industry standard, with over 25,000 installations to date, and our uberSVN community clearly told us that it is their continuous build integration server of choice."
