About

Nowadays, Agile application development is usually done at a fast pace when many developers are working on the same piece of code. Every so often, this becomes a real challenge if there’s no permanent control over consistency of the project source. It is often impossible to force lazy and/or busy programmers to execute tests before and after each of their commits. Continuous Integration is a well-known life saver for distributed development environments with TeamCity being one of the best and easy-to-use instruments utilizing it.

As the project grows and more sophisticated requirements to the build process arise, the examples from this guide will assist you showing how to unleash TeamCity hidden powers and adjust advanced features to bring stability into the distributed development process.

You will learn how to start a new Java project from scratch generating a working “skeleton” of web application using Apache Maven and later adding some business logic and writing certain tests. After that, you will know how to perform a swift attach of TeamCity facilities to your project and eventually change it into rich featured information source describing the current state of your venture. If you want to benefit from Continuous Integration and are considering using TeamCity then this book is for you.

You will be acquainted with everything you need to know in order to apply Continuous Integration with TeamCity by installing it first, then turning on automatic supervision over project’s reliability, and finally tuning up advanced settings in order to match your needs.
