Installing Jenkins and Java in CentOS6.5 and Creating the Freestyle Project Job for Shell command execution

In this tutorial we will learn, how to install openJDK and Jenkins in CentOS6.5 and how to configured jobs in Jenkins.

We need:
1. CentOS6.5 Installed in your system
2. Have root level access
3. Internet access in your system for downloading the required files

Installing the java-1.7.0-openjdk

For installing the java you have to type the bellow command:

[root@dev]# yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk

[root@dev]# java -version
[root@dev]# java -version
java version "1.7.0_95"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel- u95-b00)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)

Installation of a stable version of Jenkins

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/jenkins.repo
rpm --import
yum install jenkins

service jenkins start/stop/restart
chkconfig jenkins on

Start the Jenkins
service jenkins start

Verify Jenkins is running or not?

[root@dev]# ps -ef | grep jenkins
root      3912  1939  0 20:17 pts/0    00:00:00 grep jenkins
jenkins   8331     1  5 19:41 ?        00:01:58 /etc/alternatives/java -Dcom.sun.akuma.Daemon=daemonized -Djava.awt.headless=true -DJENKINS_HOME=/var/
lib/jenkins -jar /usr/lib/jenkins/jenkins.war --logfile=/var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log --webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war --daemon --httpPort=8080 --ajp13
Port=8009 --debug=5 --handlerCountMax=100 --handlerCountMaxIdle=20

Note: I'm running CentOS with vagrant and virtual box so I have to do the tunneling for access the Host and port of Jenkins by putty. 

Open the any browser and type the URL of Jenkins
