[TIP] continuous integration - what are you using?

We use BuildBot and QuickBuild.

Your choice should really depend on your (technical and functional)

a) You may have to connect to a specific code repository, and not every CI
tools comes with a good integration for exotic ones.
b) You may want to run plain unit tests... or much more complicated ones. We
run tests that last for dozens of hours... and there are specific issues to
deal with (such as timeouts, for instance)
c) You may want to customize your test steps a lot (running exotic tests,
storing test results in a DB, etc.). In this case you want to have a tool
that you feel comfortable extending.
d) You may want to have complicated workflows (such as running performance
tests only of the unit tests pass on all platforms, synchronizing tests on
different platforms, etc). In this case, you want a CI tool with advanced
workflow capabilities... or you want to integrate the CI tools *within *a
workflow engine (we use a BPM for that).

As far as I know, there is not tool that covers everything anyway.

Good luck
