Hudson…

5 Oct

I’ve never used a build or “continous integration” server before.My first tool is hudson.it’s very easy to install and configure.First, you need to start Hudson before installing it. This can be done from JNLP, or by running java -jar hudson.war".Once Hudson is started this way, look for the “Install as Windows Service” link in the “Manage Hudson” page.

HUDSON FEATURES:

Change set support:

Hudson can generate a list of changes made into the build from CVS/Subversion. This is also done in a fairly efficient fashion, to reduce the load of the repository.

Permanent links:

Hudson gives you clean readable URLs for most of its pages, including some permanent links link “latest build”/”latest successful build”, so that they can be easily linked from elsewhere.

RSS/E-mail/IM Integration:

Monitor build results by RSS or e-mail to get real-time notifications on failures.

After-the-fact tagging:

Builds can be tagged long after builds are completed

Dash board:

Hudson has an attractive dashboard with Colorful as well as meaningful icons. We can separate this building projects into subgroups also. It will also shows building projects.

Auto copy of  SVN updates:

No need to provide any other code to copy the project from SVN to the local compiling folder.

Plugin Support:

Hudson can be extended via 3rd party. You can write plug-ins to make Hudson support tools/processes that your team uses.
