Load Testing: Using Jenkins Continuous Integration in the Cloud
Software development is no simple matter these days, what with ever more complex apps and bigger demands on them. There are a whole load of tasks that must be taken into consideration to ensure that software is developed successfully. Beside s the actual development itself, there’s testing, debugging, the deployment into production and (while we hope not) more debugging. It can be an onerous process.
Additionally, quality control is imperative. It’s no good implementing all of these tasks if the end result remains unsatisfactory. That’s why the best developers use continuous integration (CI).
CI servers help developers ensure that they can clearly identify bugs, bottlenecks and system failures, so they can fix them swiftly and be confident that their software is robust.
Developers can choose to use a variety of CI servers. Jenkins is one of the most popular. But basically, if CI is what is needed, developers only have a couple of options. Either configure your own server or use a cloud solution. The latter is usually the easier and preferred option.
CloudBees is a Java meets the Cloud, so it offers an ideal solution by combining the two. Plus, it now includes BlazeMeter’s load testing cloud. As a result, CloudBees makes continuous integration simpler and more efficient than ever. And it’s no longer necessary to set up a separate Jenkins server.
BlazeMeter’s platform for building applications and running performance tests is the best choice for developers that want to use Jenkins. And it’s simple and fast to use it. Simply log on to your CloudBees account, and go to your dashboard , where you’ll find all the possible options to maximize your CI.
