We have recently moved our build engine over to Jenkins, and were rather impressed by the maven integration (along with some maven plugins) for unit testing, javadoc, checkstyle, and findbugs. Have a look here:
However, we build more than java/maven products, so I really wanted to see what it offered to our various scons/python/c++ builds.
We already run cppunit and unittest(python), but can Jenkins give us more than console output?
The answer is YES.
Nose is a python test framework will generate output in a which can be imported natively into Jenkins.
Our large console output log is less useful for visually capturing what happened on a build, and it main reason for being read by a developer has been replace by some pretty graphs on the build page.
