Did anyone succeed deploying Watir test cases to a continuous integration system such as Team City or Hudson?

I'm trying to find a way to have the test scripts executed and have the results generated in a report format? Any experiences using the Ruby plugin for Hudson plus the ci_reporter?

A quick Google shows plenty of people doing this, including This page from WatirMelon ( if you dont know of this site could be worth your while reading it, lots of good stuff on it )

and an example of using ci_reporter is here

  • Thanks for you answer but the first link just talks about some tricks to avoid the execution being interrupted and in the second link the text seems to be truncated.

  • Link works for me and all the text is there, link is pastebin.com/KueD466k Maybe you could expand more on exactly what you are looking for ? Jul 17, 2012 at 12:54

I am running Watir scripts from Jenkins CI on a couple of projects. I do plan to write about it at my blog soon. If you have specific questions, please ask. I have recently recorded a screencast about the entire test automation solution I have developed for a client: Test automation at HomeSwap.com

  • I've used Jenkins but I don't think I've used Jenkins CI. Any idea what's the difference between them?
