Jenkins and Questa® VRM Plug-in
Jenkins is the leading open-source automation server that enables engineers around the world to reliably build, test, and deploy their software projects. Over the past several years, many project teams have begun to adopt Jenkins to support their verification projects as well. However, with existing solutions verification engineers can run only their verification engines from within Jenkins. They receive very little meaningful information about their verification results through Jenkins, requiring them to manually interpret and analyze results. Jenkins is a continuous integration management environment, but does not directly support the management, execution, and analysis of verification toolsets. The Mentor Questa® Verification Run Manager (VRM) plugin gives Jenkins the ability to utilize regression run results through the Questa VRM system, in addition to managing and running their regressions through Jenkins.
