What is Jenkins?
Jenkins is an open source automation tool written in Java with plugins built for Continuous Integration purpose. Jenkins triggers a build for every change made in the source code repository, for example, Git repository.
Once the code is built it deploys it on the test server for testing. Concerned teams are constantly notified about build and test results. Finally, Jenkins deploys the build application on the production server.
Jenkins achieves Continuous Integration with the help of plugins. If you want to integrate a particular tool, you need to install the plugins for that tool. For example it, Maven 2 project, Amazon EC2, HTML publisher etc.
