• Before you start

    Welcome to JePL learning program

    This section are tailed to developers that require to look deeper into the PaC (pipeline as code) engine development and how the baseline criteria is being translated into code.

    This step-by-step guide will provide the easiest way to start using the jenkins-library-pipeline. In particular, it is addressed for software developers with any of the following needs:

    … you have a Python or Java-based software project

    whose source code is openly accessible (e.g. through GitHub)

    … you want to enhance the quality of this software, such as:
    • The readability of the code since you start a new research collaboration that will imply external contributions to that code, or you have received positive feedback about the software and you would like to guarantee its long-term sustainability.

    • The reliability and deterministic behaviour of the software, as you have detected unexpected behaviours when running this software.

    … you have read the SQA baseline, so you know that:
    1. The readability is aligned with the good practices in the QC.Sty category. You have decided that the Python’s PEP8 standard is the most suitable for your goals.

    2. The reliability of the software is improved by considering the practices in the QC.Uni, QC.Fun and QC.Int.

    … you want to execute the previous checks in an automated fashion for every change in your source code.

    You heard about the v2 series of the jenkins-pipeline-library (that’s why you are reading this) and want to start using it.
