Continuous Integration with Maven, Jenkins, and Nexusc

Continuous Integration with Maven, Jenkins, and Nexus

Bascom Bridge’s Continuous Integration with Maven, Jenkins and Nexus training class teaches students the Apache Maven build process, the principles of continuous integration, and how to implement continuous integration with automated test execution using Jenkins, Maven, and the Sonatype Nexus OSS repository manager. Students use a local copy of Jenkins and to create and run Maven jobs, link to a version control system, run automated testing, and generate development reports. Attendees configure the system to log build reports and generated artifacts to a Nexus repository.



All students will learn how to:

  • Download and install Maven
  • Build a project
  • Work with Maven’s directory structure, plugins, repositories, and more
  • Understand the Project Object Model (POM)
  • Build a complete web application using Maven
  • Build and activate profiles
  • Use Maven from Eclipse via the m2eclipse plugin
  • Install and configure Jenkins in a servlet container
  • Create Jenkins builds
  • Configure and use Apache Ant and Apache Maven with Jenkins
  • Use Jenkins to generate Java coding standards reports, code coverage reports, and change notices
  • Use Jenkins to automatically deploy software into a testing environment
  • Configure Maven and Jenkins to deploy the generated artifacts to Nexus


Attendees should have familiarity with Java development practices.


All students receive comprehensive courseware.


  • Windows 7 or later with at least 4GB RAM
  • JDK 7 or later
  • Eclipse for Java EE Developers
  • Jenkins
  • Apache Maven 3.x
  • Apache Tomcat 6.x or later
  • Adobe Reader
  • Related free software and related lab files that Accelebrate provides
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
