I have a selenium webdriver live project build using maven and junit framework. I want to run this using jenkins. I google searched but was able to find information when the project is build using testng. I need this information for junit framework.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Note: I am using eclipse mars, so maven is installed automatically.

  • Good question. I would like to know answer. Can you please tell what kind of approaches you have done?

  • I have built the automation using maven using JUnit fremework. Feb 23, 2016 at 7:05
  • I have downloaded the jenkins war file from the jenkins website and ran it in command prompt using command java -jar jenkins.war. Rem: jenkins.war is the name of teh jenkins war. Now after the command got executed, you can run the url localhost:8080, you can find jenkins running. I am not sure how to run the project I have built in JUnit to run using jenkins Feb 23, 2016 at 7:07

With Jenkins you can execute shell commands. I would just execute the Maven command you would use locally to run the tests on your own computer. Maybe something like: mvn clean test

Using Jenkins built-in "Execute Windows batch command" you can run commands using the windows shell.

Using Jenkins built-in "Execute shell" you can run commands using unix shell

  • Can please share more details or link ? Because I have maven project also.

I would suggest you follow the below approach

  • Create a main method to invoke your test
  • Use Maven for managing dependencies and create an Ant build file to run your main method
  • Install Ant plugin in Jenkins
  • Define workspace and build file while creating a Jenkin job. Specify time if you wish to run the test automatically at a given time/durations OR run the Jenkin job manually from Jenkins console

If you do not want to use Ant, you may create a jar file for your framework and run the jar directly by creating a Jenkins job that executes the jar file


I found below mentioned post to be highly useful to get my problem resolved


This site gives step-by-step instructions for Eclipse 4.5 Mars/4.4 Luna, with lots of screenshots. Detailed instructions on installing as an embedded module or a standalone application and then configuring Eclipse to use Maven are given.

When I followed the instructions I was able to use the configuration I set up to get my Jenkins builds working.
