Jenkins, an open-source continuous integration tool can automate the whole build cycle of your software project. This tool comes with the pipeline feature which helps developers to put their code into the repository to run automated tests. The test reports can be fetched after the testing task completes.  
 Another big advantage of this tool is its plugin ecosystem. You can integrate more than 1,000 plugins in the current version of this tool which makes it the easiest task to integrate most of the DevOps tools like Puppet & Docker. You can customize this tool according to your requirements. It has an automated and real-time error detection capability that gives you instant feedback if any broken build is detected in a sprint. 
3. Docker 


Docker is an open-source tool used to create and run applications using containers. A developer can create a container to packages an application and it's all dependencies like source code, supporting files, system config files that are required for the smooth execution of an application. It allows a developer to run an application on any Linux machine irrespective of fact that the original machine used for its development differs in terms of the settings. 
 You can create a complete package & ship it on to any other machine with all supporting files. It reduces the size of the application and takes very little time for its execution.  
4. Gradle 


After Apache Ant and Maven, Gradle comes into existence in 2009. It allows developers to write code in C++, Java, Python, and many other languages. Earlier, Gradle used Groovy-based DSL for writing build scripts. Then back in 2016, Gradle launched Kotlin based DSL and now you can write your build scripts in Kotlin as well. Its popularity can be judged by the fact that Google has also used Gradle as an official build tool for Android Studio.
