Building an App as a Freestyle Jenkins Project

Jenkins is a powerful tool for automating continuous integration. One of the simplest ways to implement CI for a software application is to configure a freestyle project in Jenkins. With a freestyle project, you can configure Jenkins to execute a build every time a change is made to the source code. Learning to configure a freestyle Jenkins project will also prepare you for more advanced ways of utilizing Jenkins. After completing this exercise, you will know how to implement a freestyle Jenkins build for an application.
