The biggest challenge in writing HTML5 applications is that your application must run on many platforms, ranging from old desktop browsers to cutting-edge mobile browsers. Each browser behaves nearly the same, but inconsistencies can lead to major bugs. Kevin Nilson, hardcore developer and VP of Engineering at just.me, shows you how to leverage several open source Java tools to test your HTML5 apps in ALL browsers, including: TestSwarm, QUnit, Jenkins, Hudson,Oracle VM VirtualBox, GlassFish Server.

We talk to Steve Harris, Senior VP of Products about being voted onto the JCP Executive Committee, the success of Jenkins and more.
Kohsuke Kawaguchi, creator of Jenkins and architect at CloudBees, discusses how to use Jenkins to efficiently shift more workload from your laptops and computers to servers. By using “pre-tested commits” you can make changes safely so that your changes don’t block others, run tests asynchronously, and avoid compounding errors intrinsic to large projects with numerous developers contributing to the repository. Advances in distributed version control systems (such as Git) made it possible to test every commit separately before it hits the team’s main branch. This helps you keep the main branch more stable, and lets you get more values out of the CI server. In this session, Kohsuke look at the details of this technique, and how to make it work with your projects. It covers
When you send a package through FedEx it goes through a tracked, automated process that makes sure that the package arrives promptly at the destination. The same should apply to every commit that you check into the trunk. Continuous delivery describes how this process can be made fully automated and transparent and we will show you how your commits can be fedexed to production on application servers like JBoss, Tomcat, Weblogic and others with the help from Jenkins and LiveRebel. The main idea of continuous delivery is the deployment pipeline. Every commit that enters the pipeline should go through automated integration and testing and if successful, produce a release candidate. We will show how Jenkins can be used to orchestrate the process all the way to the staging
