Lets break the build to see how Jenkins reacts. I’ll add a DLL to the project then “forget” to add it to source control; unfortunately I see this problem a lot when new developers join the team.
I see red projects
As you can see Jenkins now shows a red ball next to the Demo project. Also notice the slightly cloudy weather icon indicating all is not well with our project.
How’s the weather?
Jenkins uses a weather metaphor to show at a glance how a project is doing.

======= »»»> breaking the build Obviously we want our projects to stay sunny and avoid the bad weather so next time we’ll discuss how to diagnose and fix a broken build.
