History, Architecture, Pipeline & Benefits of Jenkins

For teams that are willing to integrate the different stages of DevOps, they can do it through continuous integration. There are several tools available to help perform this integration. One of the most popular ones out of them is Jenkins. However, before you jump the gun and start to put this tool to work, you must understand what it exactly is, how it works, what features it comes with, and what advantages it offers over other similar tools.

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.

What is Jenkins? History, Architecture, Pipeline & Benefits

For teams that are willing to integrate the different stages of DevOps, they can do it through continuous integration. There are several tools available to help perform this integration. One of the most popular ones out of them is Jenkins. However, before you jump the gun and start to put this tool to work, you must understand what it exactly is, how it works, what features it comes with, and what advantages it offers over other similar tools.

When Jenkins was launched, it was just an open-source continuous integration tool. However, after recent updates, it has become a tool that is capable of performing two jobs – continuous integration and continuous delivery. It is now a tool that helps in organizing application deployment as well. This blog intends to cover all the details that you should know about Jenkins before you start using it in your IT projects.

Continuous Delivery Pipelines with Jenkins 2.0

Within our engineering team, we build, test and deploy mobile, web and embedded applications targeting a wide variety of platforms and to do so we primarly use Jenkins for continuous integration and deployment. While Jenkins may not always be the prettiest or most user-friendly tool out there, it’s extremely flexible and thanks to the huge open source community behind the project there are very few configurations that cannot be supported out of the box. Plus there’s also an extensive API should the need arise to create custom plugins or tool integrations.

The recent Jenkins 2.0 release brings some interesting new features but the one we’re most excited about is delivery pipelines and an extensible Groovy-based Domain Specific Language (DSL) which enables us to model a “pipeline as code” by versioning a Jenkinsfile along with our source. However, pipelines in Jenkins are not a new concept, they’ve been around for a year or two under the name of workflows but with the 2.0 release this functionality becomes part of the key offering and it very much feels like this will be the future of how we manage builds in Jenkins.

Jenkins — How Can We Get Started Jobs in Jenkins (Part 3)

In the previous article, we learned how to create Users + Manage + Assign Roles in Jenkins. In this article, I will be highlighting how can we create some basic JOBS in Jenkins. Furthermore, these are the points which I am going to explain.

  • How to create a basic Job in Jenkins.
  • Basic Job Configurations.
  • How to run the Job remotely.
  • How to chain Job Execution

How to create a basic Job in Jenkins?

First of all **click **on New Item on the Jenkins Dashboard. Then Give a name to your project. Then you can select a **Freestyle **or **Multi-configuration **project. For this tutorial please go with the Freestyle project. Then click on the **Okay **button.

As soon as you complete these simple steps you will be taken to the **configuration **window. Here you can provide different details about Jobs. There are 5 sections available. **General, Source Code Management, Build Triggers, Build, **and Post-build Actions.

General Section

Here you can provide a quick description of your project or Job. You can preview it also. You can also use HTML tags inside the description.

Source Code Management Section

So here in case you want to take the build from any source code system like Git, Bitbucket, or any other source code management portals. We need to add plugins to those source code repositories. But in the coming tutorials, we will see how exactly we can get our build and trigger our Job from a source code management system.
