Chapter 5. Continuous Integration and Delivery with Maven

Continuous Integration is a common practice proposed by the extreme programming (XP) methodology to integrate various components developed over a long period of time by different groups. Continuous Delivery is a series of processes designed to ensure software quality and to deploy them safely as the final version to a production-like environment. Continuous Integration is de facto complimentary to Continuous Delivery and anticipates this stage.

The Continuous Integration workflow can be summarized as follows:

  • A developer submits changed code to the Software Configuration Management system
  • The code build is automated (periodically or triggered by code changes)
  • Unit tests are executed
