We can choose any services for CI, but now we decided to use Jenkins, Travis CI and AppVeyor.

1. Build services provided by ASF 

This page ( contains information on the various build services that are provided to all ASF projects for continuous integration, builds, testing, snapshots and deployment. Please read this page first. 

Jenkins setup 


You can see more information in this link:
  • First, you have to get an access to Jenkins ( To get an access to Jenkins, Ask your PMC chair
  • If you get an access, open and login with your account
  • Jenkins > New Item : Enter item name and check Maven project. 
  • To trigger Github pull request builds, Follow the steps in this link:

  • Set JDK version to 1.7
  • Check "Restrict where this project can be run" and add "ubuntu" into the "Label Expression" filed. The builder will be executed on ubuntu machines. Therefore, to build in windows machine, we have to create another new item and add "windows1||windows2" into the "Label Expression". 
  • In Build, write "clean install" into "Goals and options" 
  • In Post Steps, check "Run regardless of build result"
  • If you want to update relevant JIRA issues whenever Jenkins builds the related patch, then add "Update JIRA relevant issues" in Post-build Action. To trigger this post build action, we have to insert JIRA issue number into our commit message. Here is an example commit message: "[REEF-11] Jenkins integration test".  
  • If you have any problem using Jenkins, please file a ticket to INFRA ( ) or send an email to

  • Here is an example setting:



2. Travis CI provides free service for Open Source projects.


  • Request Apache INFRA team to enable Travis-CI for GitHub repository:
  • Make `.travis.yml` file at the top folder of projects. JDK7 and JDK8 are tested simultaneously.


3. AppVeyor

AppVeyor provides free service for Open Source projects.

For setup we use, see {REEF_HOME}\appveyor.yml in our repository.

Anybody can configure their mirror of reef to be built and tested in AppVeyor. To do this, go to (after you're logged in with your GitHub account), and add your reef project. Everything pushed to any branch in the mirror gets executed in AppVeyor with the same settings as on main reef (taken from appveyor.yml). It is possible to limit the scope of tests executed by modifying test_script section. For example, to run only StreamingRemoteManagerTest in O.A.R.Wake.Tests, change it to:

  • No labels
