Open Source Continuous Integration Tools

The introduction of a continuous integration paradigm into the aforementioned cycle fixes the integration problem. CI allows you to know almost immediately if the build process or QA or anything else failed due to a change in the code as a result of a bug. If a developer checks in a piece of code that breaks the build process, you want to know that as soon as possible. For instance, if your integration tests fail after a developer changes an interface, you want to know that right away.
In continuous integration, when code is checked in, the repository is built, basic (or even advanced) tests run, and a new drop is ready for further QA. Some open source tools can help bring this concept to your SEL.
