Jenkins is one of the popular tools for continuous integration, build management, and automation testing. Maven is a popular build automation tool that is widely used for Java projects. The combination of Selenium, Maven, Jenkins integration is the pinnacle of continuous integration and deployment.
As a part of automation testing, we’re sure your team comes up with numerous Selenium test automation scripts every other day. As Selenium itself is not used for Continuous integration, Selenium, Maven, and Jenkins integration are leveraged for build management and continuous integration. In this article, we look at the usage of Maven and Jenkins with Selenium.
A quick summary of the blog post is below:
Maven is a popular build automation tool that is primarily used for Java projects. The advantage of using Maven is that Java libraries and plugins are downloaded on a dynamic basis from the Maven 2 Central Repository.
The dependencies and other essential build-related information are stored in a pom.xml file of the project. Once downloaded, the dependencies are stored in a local cache (.M2 repository), and the same is used for build generation. This simplifies the build process, as any new project dependency has to be added only in pom.xml, i.e., no manual downloading and installation packages are required.
Selenium is a widely used test automation framework for validating web applications across different combinations of browsers, platforms, and devices (or emulators). You can refer to our blogs on how Selenium Grid can be used for automated browser testing.
Jenkins is an open-source CI/CD tool that helps in the automation of activities related to build, test, and deployment. Jenkins has an extensive plugin ecosystem, is open-source, and a passionate community – factors that can be attributed to Jenkins’ features.
In this Maven and Jenkins with Selenium blog, we would be using TestNG, which is a popular test framework that is inspired by JUnit. It is widely used for testing areas such as functional testing, end-to-end testing, and more.
These are the set of tools that we would be using in the demonstration:
Here is the overall flow of information when Selenium, Maven, and Jenkins are integrated:

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.

This video on Maven and Jenkins Integration will help you understand what Jenkins does. It will help you understand the applicability of the integration of Maven and Jenkins. The process would be further simplified and explained with the help of a hands-on demo.
The topics covered in the video are:

Selenium is an automation testing tool; it is primarily used to test websites and web applications; it is an open-source tool. With the help of Selenium, test cases can run directly in web browsers, just like a person operating the web browsers. It supports many web browsers such as Opera, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc. There are several different sub tools to support different automation test approaches. In this article, we will learn about selenium tool suite, its components and features. So let’s start!!!
