How to download Jenkins











Jenkins is a tool used for CI / CD. Are you wondering what is CI and CD? Ok let me explain that first.


Continuous Integration (CI) is a process of integrating code changes from multiple developers in a single project .The code is tested immediately after the changes or commit, Whenever the code is committed , the code is built and tested.


Continuous Deployment / Delivery (CD) , when the test is passed , the build is tested in deployment. If the deployment is successful, the code is pushed to production and delivered.


So continuous integration / deployment is continuous process of commit, build , test , and deploy.


Now let’s download Jenkins through command prompt…


Pre-requisite : Install — Java 8 or Java 11 and set Environment Path

Step 2 : Click Generic Java Package(.war)


Step 3 : Once you on that .war , it will download into your default location. Go their and open command prompt or directly open command prompt give following details
