SpiraTeam includes the ability to integrate with a variety of continuous integration / automated build servers so that the results of automated builds can be displayed in SpiraTeam linked to the associated release or iteration. In addition, the results of automated tests and source code operations can be linked to the build events, providing traceability from a specific build to the bugs that were fixed, tests that were run and source code files that were modified.
Jenkins provides continuous integration services for software development, primarily in the Java programming language. It is a server-based system running in a servlet container such as Apache Tomcat. It supports SCM tools including CVS, Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Perforce and Clearcase, and can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven based projects as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands.
Hudson is a continuous integration (CI) tool written in Java, which runs in a servlet container, such as Apache Tomcat or the GlassFish application server. It supports SCM tools including CVS, Subversion, Git and Clearcase and can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven based projects, as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands. Builds can be started by various means, including scheduling via a cron-like mechanism, building when other builds have completed, and by requesting a specific build URL.
When you use the SpiraTeam plugin for Jenkins/Hudson, it will allow you to associate each Jenkins/Hudson project with a corresponding project and release in SpiraTeam. Then, each time Jenkins/Hudson creates a new build, a corresponding build artifact will be created in SpiraTeam. Each build in SpiraTeam will be automatically linked to the incidents fixed, source code revisions committed, and any SpiraTeam tokens in the Jenkins/Hudson changelog will be parsed and turned into SpiraTeam artifact hyperlinks.
