Using Pipelines to Build Your Applications

When you organize your build, test, code analysis and deployment tasks with Jenkins, Micro Focus recommends that you use pipelines in preference to projects.

You can save your pipelines as Jenkinsfiles and store them in your source code control system alongside your code. This means you can use different build instructions in the Jenkinsfile for the different branches of your code that represent the versions of the application. You only configure Jenkins once to use the sources from a particular branch in the source code control system and Jenkins will read the instructions in the pipeline about how to build your application.
