Jenkins

Jenkins is wonderful for technically proficient users to setup continuous integration quickly. In addition, if you have processes that are currently only available via command-line utilities - you can setup Jenkins jobs to run these and this now makes those jobs accessible for users who cannot or will not use command-line. In addition, the easy to use interface allows more than the tech team to utilize jobs after they are set up allowing you to spread the workload for manually triggered jobs.

Pros

  • Jenkins will allow you to setup continuous integration quickly for your development lifecycle. In addition to setting up your code to compile and perform unit testing, Jenkins can handle deploying the code to the needed servers.
  • Jenkins will allow you to set up processes that you wouldn't even expect to need - in our case we used it to manage our database schema by utilizing the ability to run scripts to run liquibase updates.
  • Jenkins has so many plugins, you can even integrate your deployments to update the associated task when it is ready for QA. In our case, we utilized plugins to integrate with JIRA and to notify us in our team chat that a build was ready for testing.

Performance

Based on 1 answer
I have never had a performance concern with the Jenkins UI. Everything loads in a reasonable amount of time even when performing complex builds. We have integrated numerous unit testing, detecting, and coverage tests to our builds and Jenkins is able to easily handle the load we put on it.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure includes Azure Pipelines as part of its suite of tools. It is an adequate tool but tends to be overly complicated. I find that Jenkins is a much simpler tool to use.

Return on Investment

  • Time - No longer need to manually run deploys, test scripts, etc. since Jenkins will do it automatically for you.
  • Resources (People) - Automating tasks requires less things needing to be done, thus not requiring as many developers
  • Code Quality - Because of continuous integration and automation capabilities, we can put quality checks into the workflow and run tests to make sure things are working and don't break (without needing to do any extra work)
