At the 2012 San Francisco JUC, Cloudbees' Toomas Romer and Anton Arhipov discuss continuous delivery:


Packages sent via FedEx go through a tracked, automated process that makes sure that the package arrives promptly at its destination. Why shouldn't every commit that you check into the trunk be applied similarly? Continuous delivery describes how this process can be made fully automated and transparent and your commits can be "FedExed" to production on application servers like JBoss, Tomcat, Weblogic and more using Jenkins, LiveRebel and other tools.
