The trends in the QA process is advancing into the next level of advancement and its relevant that we embrace the change and move with it. The introduction of CI has rectified many troubles the expertise face. Such as the Speed, accuracy, precision, and the regression.
In CI every step committed by the developer is automatically reflected in the repository.
The tester can set up a trigger, such that whenever a new version of the application is detected the Jenkins pulls the build and the automated test suite should come into action thus the portions of applications are tested efficiently with ease.
And now QA engineers can save time from running regression testing while ensuring that no features are missed while the change.
The interesting thing in CI is that when multiple developers are working on different features or changes, yet the task of one gets not affected by the other in any circumstance.
That is when one developer finished his/her task they can commit their code and that is reflected in the repository and the trigger comes while t Jenkins pulls the build and automation test suite runs. So the developer doesn’t have to wait for other commits to make a single build and update in server, also through this, if an issue occurs the QA engineer can identify which developer’s committed code has caused the issue helping easy identification and fast rectification
With the CI the QA engineers can Generate test result easily and can also keep the test result of every version of the applications.
The Jenkins supports different plugins and other testing tools such as Jmeter selenium etc.we can even config the Jenkins in a way that it can automatically push the completely passed build into a remote server that lights the idea of CD.
The common idea of CD is that the code that is pushed into the repository should be in a state that can be deployed at the required time. Once the repository has all of its tests passing for the codebase, get it automatically deployed to an environment in a single step. Having deployments in a repeatable condition makes them quick and easy. It also allows you to iron out any issues with your deployment strategy nearer the start of a project.
