Jenkins Installation on Windows

Published on 26 October 18


In this article, we will see what Jenkins software tool is all about and also look in to its installation process on a Windows based machine. Firstly let us understand what Jenkins is all about and why / where this software tool can be put to use?

Jenkins is a very powerful automation platform that makes it relatively easy to automate the build process (through ANT), regression testing and also the integration. There are quite a few reasons why you would want to do this, as mentioned below:

1) It helps the developer’s time being focused on things that matter. With newer code blocks added to the same functionality, your developer doesn’t need to worry further on testing it as running regression tests with Jenkins is pretty simple. This means that developer time is not compromised with something that is not required.
2) It helps in the improvement of software quality. With Continuous integration, identifying issues caused by newer check-ins can be identified and resolved earlier than being reported at a later stage of design and development.
3) It ensures faster development, as the likelihood of any integrations issues are lesser and also the whole part of integration is also automated.

Enhance your IT skills and proficiency by taking up the Jenkins Training.

3) Jenkins installation is much easier.
4) Jenkins has a surplus of 1000 and counting plug-in’s support.
5) Jenkins provides a provision to create a new Jenkins plugin if one is not available.
