Integrating PHP Projects with Jenkins
Continuous Integration for Robust Building and Testing
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: September 2011
Pages: 60

Today's web applications require frequent updates, not just by adding or upgrading features, but by maintaining and improving the software’s existing code base as well. This concise book shows PHP developers how to use Jenkins, the popular continuous integration server, to monitor various aspects of software quality throughout a project’s lifecycle.

You'll learn how to implement continuous integration to automate processes for building and deploying regular software releases. The book also shows you how to use Jenkins to monitor and improve your application through continuous inspection. You'll come to understand why reducing complexity and eliminating duplicate code is just as important as introducing new functionality.

  • Learn how to use Apache Ant to automate your software builds
  • Create a job for your PHP project in Jenkins and set up a continuous integration environment
  • Add static code analysis tools to your build for continuous inspection
  • Use specialized PHP and Jenkins tools to simplify the automated build and continuous integration of your project
  • Explore additional processes and techniques, such as adding automated integration tests

Comments about oreilly Integrating PHP Projects with Jenkins:

This book was exactly the topic I was looking for as we are going to implement Jenkins on a PHP project. The examples were thorough and helpful and the reading went very quickly. The only thing I didn't like was that the only build script that was covered was Ant, which we will not be using. A brief coverage of a few other build scripts would have been helpful. Overall, I am glad I read this book to get started.

Comments about oreilly Integrating PHP Projects with Jenkins:

From the first page, the steps and instructions in this book do not work because the tools and repositories detailed have moved or are no longer available. The companion web site for this book has not been updated. Unless you have an awful lot of time to invest in researching and experimenting with new ways to perform the tasks described in this book, avoid this book. There are better tutorials online that you can find with any search engine.
