What Continuous Integration Server are you using in 2009?

(Probably) more representative than an African election! With all the scientific rigour of an 8th grade science lab! Guaranteed to accurately represent the opinions of at least 100% of the people who voted! It's the 2009 Wakaleo Continuous Integration poll!

Last year, Hudson was the clear winner, with 230 out of the 584 votes. Coming in second and third were CruiseControl and Continuum. Of the commercial tools, TeamCity and Bamboo led the pack. You can view last years results here.

This year, CI tools are evolving across the board. Hudson still seems to have a very bright future, with an ever-increasing number of plugins and a very wide user base. Commercial tools are starting to play an increasing role in the market. Bamboo offers in-depth build metrics and unrivalled integration with the Atlassian tools such as JIRA and Clover. Cruise, from Thoughtworks, attempts to tackle the problem of release automation front-on. And tools like TeamCity and Pulse propose innovative "private builds" and (for the former) very close IntelliJ integration.

So, come along and vote for your favorite CI tool in the 2009 Wakaleo Continuous Integration poll! (The poll is on the right hand side of the screen)

My apologies for the non-intuitive UI - the poll on the right-hand side of the screen, and also on the right hand side of the home page (

Couldn't figure out how to vote on the link provided. We're using CruiseControl and Hudson.
