Cruise Control For Contionous Integration

What is Cruise Control?

An important part of any software development process is getting reliable builds of the software. Despite its importance, we are often surprised when this isn't done. We stress a fully automated and reproducible build, including testing, that runs many times a day. This allows each developer to integrate daily thus reducing integration problems.

Cruise Control is a framework for a continuous build process. It includes plugins for various source controls, email notifications. It id distributed under BSD style license and free to use. It is developed and maintained by volunteers.


Benefits of using Cruise Control.

The benefits of Cruise Control are it removes the integration process. As Cruise Control maintains a continuous build and reports the status, at all time you are aware of the status of the build and no need to create the integration process separately. Also reduces bugs in both production and process which eventually results in faster delivery.
