Continuous Delivery as Code with Jenkins and Gradle

Continuous Delivery enables building, testing and deploying of software through build pipelines faster and more frequently with a well known steps.
But how to implement a continuous delivery pipeline in real world? How to translate the theory into practice?

In this session we are going to discuss how Jenkins and Gradle can help you on build this pipeline/workflow and the advantages of implementing this pipeline as code instead of using Jenkins static build steps.

We will start by a really simple Java EE application and learn how to build it with Gradle, automating unit, integration and functional tests, incorporating popular code quality tools, as well as packaging, publishing and deploying the deliverable using Jenkins Workflow as the director of the whole process.
