At GRS, a continuous integration platform based on the software Jenkins is used to verify and validate the code system AC2 consisting of the codes ATHLET, ATHLET-CD and COCOSYS. It automates different steps of the verification and validation process. If these steps were done manually, they would take up significant resources. Each time new or changed code is sent to the source code management system, the software is built for all supported operating systems and configurations and verifications as well as validation tests are executed. If test builds do not work or the results of verification or validation show deviations from the specified test targets, immediate actions can be taken to resolve any problems. During the last years the continuous integration platform has helped to improve both the quality of the software and productivity. It helps to maintain the robust quality management regime of the development process of AC2.
