continuous integration

A software development system that ensures code changes are compiled and tested routinely. Continuous integration (CI) is used for large applications developed by several programmers, each writing a part of the program. After they make changes to their modules and check in the new code, the CI system typically compiles and tests the application immediately. See continuous delivery.

continuous delivery

A software development system that automates the project phases from source code to distribution. It eliminates most of the manual steps in compilation, testing (see continuous integration) and distribution to the final destination (website, master disc, etc.).
