Jenkins – The Definitive Guide

Download Free PDF: Jenkins - The Definitive Guide

You can download “Jenkins: The Definitive Guide – Continuous integration for the masses”, written by John Ferguson Smart, for free in pdf format. This complete guide shows you how to automate your build, integration, release, and deployment processes with Jenkins—and demonstrates how CI (Continuous Integration) can save you time, money, and many headaches.


This book is aimed at relatively technical readers, though no prior experience with CI is assumed. You may be new to Continuous Integration, and would like to learn about the benefits it can bring to your development team. Or, you might be using Jenkins or Hudson already, and want to discover how you can take your Continuous Integration infrastructure further.

Much of this book discusses Jenkins in the context of Java or JVM-related projects. Nevertheless, even if you are using another technology stack, this book should give you a good grounding in Continuous Integration with Jenkins. We discuss how to build projects using several non-Java technologies, including as Grails, Ruby on Rails and .NET. In addition, many topics, such as general configuration, notification, distributed builds and security are applicable no matter what language you are using.
