In case you want to use your own Continous Integration server to schedule test executions, Talend allows you to do so by providing you the Talend CI Builder.

Talend CI Builder is a Maven Plugin delivered by Talend that transforms the Talend Job sources to Java classes using the Talend CommandLine application, allowing you to execute your tests in your own company Java factory.

The following sections introduce one way to automate the test executions using the Talend CommandLine and Talend CI Builder that generate the sources, as well as a Jenkins server that creates builds automating the execution of all Test cases and deploys them on the Nexus artifact repository. The Jenkins server is also used to monitor these executions.
