Automated software integration flows in industry: A multiple-case study
Paper in proceedings, 2014
There is a steadily increasing interest in the agile practice of continuous integration. Consequently, there is great diver-sity in how it is interpreted and implemented, and a need to study, document and analyze how automated software inte-gration ows are implemented in the industry today. In this paper we study five separate cases, using a descriptive model developed to address the variation points in continuous integration practice discovered in literature. Each case is dis-cussed and evaluated individually, whereupon six guidelines for the design and implementation of automated software integration are presented. Furthermore, the descriptive model used to document the cases is evaluated and evolved. Copyright © 2014 ACM.
