Setting up Cruisecontrol – Continuous Integration System

Setting up Cruisecontrol is a pretty simple process. Make sure you check out the Cruisecontrol site for info on getting started and installation. The basic steps are:

  1. Download the Cruisecontrol ZIP file ( and unzip the files to a directory on your computer. I’ve un-ziped the files to C:/cruisecontrol271
  2. Then build the Cruisecontrol code using the BAT file build.bat in {INSTALL_DIR}/main/
  3. Verify the install by running the following command in the command prompt:java -jar {INSTALL_DIR}/cruisecontrol-launcher.jarYou should get a error about a missing config file. If there are any other errors, you’ll need to figure out what’s missing (I’ve seen the missing tools.jar). Usually pretty easy things to fix though.
  4. Cruise control is set up and ready to run.

*There is also a windows installer but I like the command line install, it gives the feeling of more control.

Now you’ve got Cruisecontrol installed. In my next post, I’ll show you how we set up an ActionScript 2.0 project and build loop in Cruisecontrol.
