Building, testing and deploying Android apps

Continuous Integration for Mobile Apps with Jenkins

As one of the predominant mobile platforms, Android is attractive to a number of developers, but it does bring it’s own set of challenges with it. With an extremely broad set of devices available on the market, building and testing for the matrix of device configurations can be very challenging. With the Android emulator plugin however, it is possible to build and test on a myriad of emulated devices.

When combined with the Google Play Publisher plugin, Android developers can build true continuous delivery pipeline, sending builds to an alpha channel in Google Play for release or further testing.
