I run Jenkins (master on Linux, one slave on Windows) that has two jobs
for each project: one restricted to Linux and one restricted to Windows.
The jobs themselves run tox to test multiple Python versions.

It was a bit of a hassle to set up (Java doesn't like startssl.com
certificates out of the box), but works quite well.

In modern best-practices Java it is no longer necessary or even possible to
write big piles of gratuitous OO spaghetti. Today, experienced Java programmers
build their applications on top of huge, industry-standard, highly polished
piles of architectural bullshit, wrestling with which leaves them with no time
to write any code of their own.
