||System integration plays an important role in a software development process. Moreover, environment factors such as the development processes, programming languages, OS platforms, and the ways of compiling or installing applications make the continue integration systems for traditional PC-based applications may not be applicable for developing Android-based applications.|
Without the supporting of such tools or systems, the team member(s) of an Android-based application project will have to build entire applications manually. In a large project, such procedure will be more difficult to be realized and waste many human resources. Even more, it will also cause the deployment process to be inefficient, comprise the software quality, or make the entire project fail.
In order to support the development and integration of Android-based applications, we enhanced our previously developed Daily Build and Auto Test (DBAT) system to be a continuous integration tool for dealing with some kinds of repeat works in building Android applications, including automatically compiling, testing and deployment.
