Building a Flexible and Automated Testing Infrastructure Using VectorCAST/Manage and Jenkins

How to build a flexible and automated testing infrastructure using VectorCAST/Manage and Jenkins.

Software is usually developed in three separate workflow phases. First the software is designed, then it’s coded, and finally the engineers will test the code. However this process often leads to bugs, faults in the design, and an extended testing phase which can be 2-3 times longer than the development phase. These problems will often delay the software release time and cause the company to go considerably over their budget.

The price of fixing a software bug when it’s introduced compared to after the software is deployed to thousands of customers is staggering. The most effective solution to this problem is to develop software using continous integration testing. This whitepaper details how VectorCAST/Manage and Jenkins work together to provide a scalable approach to continous integration testing of software systems.

In summary this whitepaper reviews:

  • What are the benefits of continous integration testing
  • How does Jenkins provide a foundation for continous integration testing
  • How does VectorCAST/Manage work together with Jenkins
