When we have most deployments automated using the Jenkins continuous integration server and all the changes being made are tracked in a source control versioning system such as Git, developers can spend more time on actual development tasks. As we have seen in Chapter 7, Continuous Testing, with the help of automation testing, we can cover the testing cycle faster and fulfill code coverage criteria in Salesforce. Selenium makes it easy to automate test cases. Finding bugs in an early phase of the software development cycle is very important in order to make sure software is bug-free and application deliverables are deployed to production faster.
