Development teams worldwide are adopting "agile" methodologies to manage change and to improve software quality. These methodologies promote continuous integration as a practice to build and test software products incrementally as new features are included, bugs are fixed, and code is re-factored with much reduced build and release cycles.
This adoption of Continuous Integration (CI) attempts to assure quality while expediting the entire SDLC cycle and reducing the time to market. CI thus plays a key role in implementing auto code compilation, auto unit testing and auto build deployment process. Since QA is also an integral part of the whole SDLC, it has become obvious that the regression testing should also become part of CI.
The fundamental principle of Agile is keep the process lean and ensure low degree of dependency. The other challenge is integration of individual units developed by distributed teams. Hence, it is important that the individual code components are compiled successfully in an integrated environment regularly.
