Most web applications are changed and adapted quite frequently and
quickly. Their environment, for example the size and the behavior
of the user base, are constantly changing. What was sufficient
yesterday can be insufficient today. Especially in a web
environment it is important to monitor and continuously improve the
internal quality not only when developing, but also when
maintaining the software. Jenkins is the leading open-source
continuous integration server. Thanks to its thriving plugin
ecosystem, it supports building and testing virtually any project.
This book explains how you can leverage Jenkins to monitor the
various aspects of software quality in a PHP software project.
