Jenkins is an open-source continuous integration software tool written in the Java programming language for testing and reporting on isolated changes in a larger code base in real time. The software enables developers to find and solve defects in a code base rapidly and to automate testing of their builds.
Jenkins is packaged as a WAR, so you can drop it into whichever servlet container you prefer to use .
Jenkins comes pre-packaged with a servlet if you just want a light-weight implementation.

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery
As an extensible automation server, Jenkins can be used as a simple CI server or turned into the continuous delivery hub for any project.
Jenkins is a self-contained Java-based program, ready to run out-of-the-box, with packages for Windows, Mac OS X and other Unix-like operating systems.
With hundreds of plugins in the Update Center, Jenkins integrates with practically every tool in the continuous integration and continuous delivery toolchain.
Jenkins can be easily set up and configured via its web interface, which includes on-the-fly error checks and built-in help.
Jenkins can be extended via its plugin architecture, providing nearly infinite possibilities for what Jenkins can do.
Jenkins can easily distribute work across multiple machines, helping drive builds, tests and deployments across multiple platforms faster.
