Building a Jenkins Pipeline

Jenkins Pipelines allows you to treat all of your build logic as code. You can also integrate your build into a larger automated process that includes things like automated deployment. Pipelines are especially useful as you transition from doing CI to doing CI CD. In this exercise, you will build a simple pipeline for a sample application. You will gain a basic familiarity with how a Jenkins Pipeline is created and how to implement simple build logic within a pipeline.

  1. Challenge

    Create a new Multibranch Pipeline project in Jenkins called train-schedule.

    In Jenkins, click on New Item. For the item name, type train-schedule, and select Multibranch Pipeline. Then click the OK button.

  2. Challenge

    Successfully build the master branch of the train-schedule pipeline project.

    Fork this project in GitHub:

    On the master branch, create a Jenkinsfile. In the Jenkinsfile, create a stage that executes the gradle build with ./gradlew build --no-daemon and archives the dist/ artifact.

    Configure the train-schedule multibranch pipeline project in Jenkins to build the source code from your GitHub fork and execute the build on the master branch successfully. This should produce the dist/ archived artifact.
