University of Wisconsin - Madison is using Maven and Jenkins to manage build and deployment of uPortal and portlets across five different environments from one central UI. The WAR Overlay feature of the Maven WAR Plugin is used to inject environment specific configuration into uPortal and each portlet. Jenkins automatically builds and deploys portlets in the development and test environments when changes or new releases are detected reducing developer overhead and turnaround time. A key-pair based token encryption tool is used to securely store credentials a version control system allowing them only to be decrypted at build time on the target server.
