Hudson is a continuous integration tool written in Java that runs in a servlet container. It supports SCM tools including CVS, Subversion, Git, Perforce, Clearcase, and RTC, and can execute projects based on Apache Ant and Apache Maven, as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands. Hudson is a CI solution that provides executives, business managers, software developers, and architects with a better sense of the development progress and code quality of projects throughout their development life cycle. The concept behind CI has changed how companies look at Build Management, Release Management, Deployment Automation, and Test Orchestration.

Hudson 3 Essentials is a practical guide that will teach readers how to deploy Hudson 3 on an open source application server. Readers will learn how to run Hudson 3 in standalone mode for testing and evaluation as well as how to build, test, and deploy applications with Hudson.

This book is aimed at Java developers and administrators who would like to automate some of the mundane work required to build and test software and improve software quality. Development managers and testers can also benefit from learning how Hudson works by gaining some insight into test results and historical trends.
