I am trying to create a set of Servers to provide the infrastructure needed for a Continual Integration (Agile Development).
My first shot was a set of products like: Maven, Jenkins, Borland StarTeam (CVS that I am binded to), JBoss AS 7.1 and JBoss Dev Studio.
Then I read about Arquillan that seems to be a replacement for Jenkins, if I am not wrong, otherwise please correct me.
But so far I didn´t see Arquillan beeing able to integrate with Borland StarTeam the same way as Jenkins does neither be able to easily allow me to manage build promotions across environments like Development, Homologation and Production.
Am I going in to the right direction? Is Aquillan the proper tool for that?
Arquillian is definitely not a replacement for Jenkins. However, as a testing platform, it would help you to define and automatize various test scenarios that you'd be able to to easily run in Jenkins later on.
I can recommend you reading this book http://booksite.continuousdev.org/ - note, the sources for the book are on github.
