Deployment with Jenkins
Jenkins is one of the popular open source CI servers. This tool created with JAVA with a simple and user-friendly GUI and widely used on IT projects for enabling continuous integration by automating builds since 2011. Continuous integration is enabled by automating builds soon after a developer checks in his/her code into version control. Jenkins provides a common platform to integrate various configuration management tools to enable all batch work to finish for a final deployment.
Continuous Integration = Repeat(Build, Compile the build, Automated test and build the package).
