Demonstrating continuous integration

I'm currently working together with Jason Yip to collect all of the information we can about Continuous Integration. I figured it would be nice to demonstrate some of our knowledge about continuous integration techniques with a practical application.

The plan is pretty simple really. I'll build a simple web app and continuously integrate it. Some of the tools I intend to use are:

  • CVS
  • Java
  • Ant
  • JUnit
  • JCoverage
  • Simian
  • Tomcat
  • JWebUnit
  • FIT
  • FatCow
  • Cruise Control

I chose these tools for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they represent a failry typical Java-based web application. Secondly, they're all free. Anyone can get these tools at no cost and build their own continuously integrated app.

Ok - now that I've published my plans to the world, I'd better quit procrastinating and get stuck into it...
