When using Jenkins, you may need to install tools that are accessible to your projects. In this lesson, configure Jenkins to manage tools like Java, Ant, and Maven.
- [Instructor] After installing Jenkins,…you may also need to configure some additional tools.…Fortunately, Jenkins provides a way…to configure system tools…so that they are installed automatically.…You can even install multiple versions…of the same tool.…Let's take a look.…On the Jenkins dashboard,…select manage Jenkins,…and then global tool configuration.…On this page, you can configure Jenkins…to manage several tools, including Java, Git, and more.…The process of configuring a tool is pretty much the same…for each tool, so let's use Ant to demonstrate.…
And I'll scroll down to Ant…and next to Ant I will click add Ant.…The first thing you need to do is give the config a name.…Because you can install multiple versions,…a good practice is…to include the version number in the name.…So I'll name this one ant-1.10.1…and I'll keep install automatically checked…so that Jenkins will handle the install for us.…And then I'll select my version.…And at the bottom of the page, I'll click apply…to save the changes and stay on the page.…
First, learn how to set up Jenkins on Mac, Windows, Linux, or inside a Docker container, and find out how Jenkins plugins are used to extend its functionality. Next, configure your first job step by step, leading up to the requisite "Hello, World" output, and learn to make your jobs more useful and portable with parameters. Then explore job scheduling, and Jenkins's convenient aliases for running jobs at regular intervals. The course wraps up with tips for organizing jobs in folders and views and a brief look into pipelines as code-which enable you to execute a series of jobs in stages.
By the end of the training, you should be able to install Jenkins locally or on a virtual machine, create a Jenkins jobs that can be triggered manually or on a schedule, and install and configure plugins to extend the Jenkins framework.
