Continuous integration is an extensive experience in the Enterprise and system architectures, it is the concept of integrating new code into existing code and then utilizing the testing techniques defined by Extreme Programming. This practice yields units of code that are continually tested during development. Using continuous integration, a programmer integrates new code into existing code after the existing code has been relentlessly built. Therefore, the release of the change is done when it is and everyone knows about the new functionality at the time of the release. While this is dynamic, it should not pose problems since the code is released only after thorough testing. This particular idea generates much discussion among the software practitioners, but the result is that it does advocate the thorough building and testing of modules prior to release as its main premise. On this main premise there is no resistance. It also recognizes that the integration of code in the object-oriented paradigm deserves some focus. One of the key requirement of this paper is to develop a common platform to do automated build environment, as the current environment is emulated from decade old build system based on Make and there is no way to track changes made to the system for detecting dependency flaws.
