SCM Best Practices for Continuous Integration
Continuous integration, while not a new concept, has been rapidly adopted as a key technology process in software development organizations as part of the shift towards agile methodologies. Organizations that fail to incorporate this process are unable to improve software quality or reduce costly rework due to broken builds, limiting the business value delivered to end users.
This white paper discusses the concept of continuous integration and outlines several software configuration management (SCM) best practices to consider when implementing continuous integration. Explore the key advantages associated with using an SCM system to store and version all source code. Discover how private developer workspaces help ensure that only well-tested code is accessible to others on the development team. Learn how automated local developer builds ensure the quality of the continuous integration build. Gain insight into the value of establishing a staging and isolation hierarchy.
