A few weeks ago, a few of us joined the Jenkins community at the Jenkins User Conference 2012 in San Francisco. Our presentation “Improving Software Quality Using Component Lifecycle Management with Jenkins” given by Manfred Moser, was very well attended and there seemed to be a lot of interest. A video of our presentation has […]
A few months ago, we launched Insight Application Health Check. Today, I’d like to announce another way to get started tracking licensing and security issues. In this post, I’m going to show you how to scan your project with nothing more than Maven and an existing project. You can get started with Insight without having […]
Before JavaOne 2012 a few of us joined the Jenkins community at the Jenkins User Conference 2012 in San Francisco as Gold Sponsors. We had a great time talking to KK, Andrew and others as well as showcasing Insight For CI for Jenkins at the booth. The presentation about “Improving Software Quality Using Component Lifecycle […]

Sometimes even the long dead Maven 1 creeps up now and then. Usually my first two questions to somebody using Maven 2 are Why? and Are you sure?
