Borland Gauntlet is a continuous build and test automation system that improves visibility, software quality and developer productivity by proactively building and testing code, isolating defects, and reporting on key development metrics. It works transparently with existing version control systems to continuously analyze changes, promoting code to the main line only if it builds successfully and passes all gating tests. Problematic code can be confined within virtual sandboxes until fixed, eliminating broken builds and limiting the impact of defects on other developers. The Gauntlet dashboard provides visibility and context for the entire development organization, with both real-time snapshots and historical trends of metrics like build performance, test results, code coverage, and project activity. Gauntlet also offers an open plug-in interface for custom and 3rd party tests, enabling users to automate anything from simple source code analyzers like FindBugs or CheckStyle, to complex security vulnerability detection or license compliance enforcement solutions.
