Set Up Gated Checkin for Spring Boot Projects with Github and Jenkins. This article will guide you through configuring the Jenkins process to be triggered every time a commit is made. Then we'll make sure our GitHub repository is configured properly for this scenario. Lastly, will make a small test to see everything works properly.
One of the biggest challenges the developers are facing is being Agile or, in other words, being able to deliver stable releases of the products on time. With every Sprint, we need to deliver new features, bug-free features.
And why bother with building, testing, and deploying manually when we could have an automated process? A process that would check every piece of code before merging it in the stable branch and then deploying it. For example, deploying it on a testing machine ready for the QA team.
There are many tools for implementing this CI/CD process, but we'll stick with an awesome open-source tool, Jenkins.
Jenkins is an automation server. It helps automate building, testing, and deploying your application. Jenkins supports Git and Maven which will be our guest stars in this mini project.

The ultimate showdown between Travis CI vs Jenkins. Check out this guide to know who wins the race! Travis CI and Jenkins are both popular CI/CD tools and were launched in the same year i.e. 2011. As of July 2020, Jenkins has been the more obvious choice as CI/CD tool with 15.9k stars & 6.3k forks, in comparison to TravisCI which has 8k stars & 756 forks. However, these numbers alone don’t imply which CI/CD tool is more suitable for your upcoming or existing project. Jenkins is an open-source & Travis CI is free for open-source projects.
After using Jenkins on several projects, we say it's time to move on. Jenkins is left behind with his old approach — found out more!
To set up a serverless CI/CD pipeline in your AWS environments, there are several key services that you need to use. Find out more here.
Kubernetes helps in managing the pods running by itself, hence we do not require to monitor the pods or do the load balancing part (Orchestration). It also provides us with a persistent volume feature that helps us make our data persistent.
This article gives direction to getting your CI/CD pipeline up and running on the Kubernetes cluster by the GitLab CICD pipeline.
