If you’re looking to implement any sort of test automation within a software development project you’ll want to find a way of automating your test execution and result capture process. We’re not talking about ‘automating your tests’ here. We’re talking about automating the processes around the control and execution part of the process. More specifically it’s the process of Automating your testing using Jenkins.
Automating the processes, to provide a continuous testing capability, allows you to operate hands free (so to speak). It allows you to hand off all the complexity of the execution triggers, overseeing the execution and collating all the results. This capability is just as important as building out a good automation framework.
