JuNest and Travis CI

Travis CI offers different solutions for the continuous integration based on two different infrastructures. One of them is container based and the other one is a standard vm based platform. Both of them allows test environment suitable for most use cases. There are few drawbacks though. Generally the package version are quite old and on the container based infrastructure is not allowed the use of sudo command to install packages. The Container based infrastructure allows to have packages only via a whitelisted repository containing a limited amount of packages.

The combination Travis+JuNest offers a neat solution for having the most updated packages available for a test environment that can suitable in most of the cases.

There is a new tutorial available explaining how JuNest can help on running integration tests in a CI environment. Check it out: How to use JuNest within Travis CI
