Jenkins and jslint4java

This tutorial shows a very simple Jenkins – jslint4java integration over Shell.


  • Jenkins is installed


Start Jenkins, open the browser (http://<host>:8080) and setup a new “Free Style Project” (JS-Lint-Example).

Jenkins Freestyle Project
The tutorial does not use any VCS, so we press the “Build Now” button to create the project “workspace” folder. After successful creation, we create 3 new folders (src, lib, build) inside the workspace folder.

Now upload the jslint4java into the “lib” folder.

It`s time to test if jslint4java is running. The 1st test in terminal self.

The 2nd test direct on Jenkins. Open the “JS-Lint-Example” job in browser – press link “Configure” and we create a “Build-Step” with “Execute Shell”.

Jenkins JSLint Test

After save and build the “Console Output” of the respective build should show the help. If there is a problem here, please check if Java is installed and the file permissions are correct. If everything works fine we create a simple JavaScript file and upload this into the “src” folder.

Now we change the “Execute Shell” command and add the “Post-Build-Action” – “Publish JUnit Test Results” with value “build/js_report.xml”.

Jslint Jenkins Configuration

Ready,… after save and new build we can see the file “js_report.xml” into “build” folder and the jUnit  report into our project.
