Using Hudson/Jenkins to diagnose that intermittent failure

jenkins-logo

I have been working on one of those intermittent bugs that just won’t reproduce on my machine; but will reproduce intermittently on other machines while they are running automated testing. I filled the code with trace statements, now I suspect the problem is in code that I don’t control and doesn’t appear to have much in the way of diagnostics ...

Jenkins: Deploying JEE Artifacts

jenkins-logo

With the advent of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery , our builds are split into different steps creating the deployment pipeline. Some of these steps can be for example compile and run fast tests, run slow tests, run automated acceptance tests, or releasing the application, to cite a few. The final steps of our deployment pipeline, implies a deployment of ...

Android and Jenkins: Continuous Integration

jenkins-logo

By using Jenkins, it’s pretty easy to get a Continuous Integration server set up with an Android project. But before you dive into setting up the software itself, it’s very helpful to have some basic concepts on a few different types of software that you will run into. For those unaware, Continuous Integration is a way to improve your code ...

Build Flow Jenkins Plugin

jenkins-logo

Most of us we are using Jenkins/Hudson to implement Continuous Integration/Delivery, and we manage job orchestration combining some Jenkins plugins like build pipeline, parameterized-build, join or downstream-ext. We require configuring all of them which implies polluting the job configuration through multiple jobs, which takes the system configuration very complex to maintain. Build Flow enables us to define an upper level ...

Managing Jenkins job configurations

jenkins-logo

In JBoss Tools and Developer Studio, we manage a lot of build jobs in Jenkins. In fact, for the 3.2.x/4.x and 3.3.x/5.x streams, there are over 195 jobs. When we start building our next year’s first milestone, we’ll spawn another 40+ jobs. Here are some of them: http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/view/JBossTools/view/JBossTools_Trunk/ http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/view/JBossTools/view/JBossTools_3.3.indigo http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/view/JBossTools/view/JBossTools_3.2.helios To assist in performance, we use maven profiles in our ...

Maven Build Dependencies

Maven and Gradle users who are familiar with release and snapshot dependencies may not know about TeamCity snapshot dependencies or assume they’re somehow related to Maven (which isn’t true). TeamCity users who are familiar with artifact and snapshot dependencies may not know that adding an Artifactory plugin allows them to use artifact and build dependencies as well, on top of ...

TeamCity Build Dependencies

Introduction The subject of build dependencies is neither a trivial nor a minor one. Various build tools approach this subject from different perspectives contributing various solutions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Maven and Gradle users who are familiar with release and snapshot dependencies may not know about TeamCity snapshot dependencies or assume they’re somehow related to Maven (which ...

Taking over the Codebase, Solving the Spaghetti Crisis

software-development-2-logo

We’ve all been there. Somebody asks if you can take a look at their website that has been stagnant for a while. Something small needs to be changed. You feel up for a challenge, so you dive in. What you find is a mess. It’s really nobody’s fault. Things evolved over time, different developers and designers have done their thing ...
