BitNami Jenkins Stack greatly simplifies the deployment of Jenkins and its required dependencies. Jenkins, previously known as Hudson, is an open source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 400 plug-in to support building and testing virtually any project. It supports SCM tools including CVS, Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Perforce and Clear case, and can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven based projects as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands. It also can monitor executions of remote tasks.
