Session 4: 9.00pm – 9.20pm
Speaker: Frédéric Camblor
Subject: Some Jenkins plugins ( global build stats, scm-sync-config and compat-tester) in action
Frederic Camblo (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/frédéric-camblor/6/892/697)r (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/frédéric-camblor/6/892/697) will give a presentation of his different contributions to the jenkins project :
- The global build stats (https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Global+Build+Stats+Plugin) plugin which is a mature plugin allowing to display charts on your jenkins instances global build results
- The scm sync configuration (https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/SCM+Sync+configuration+plugin) plugin which is in an alpha state. Main purpose is to keep jenkins configuration files sync'ed with an scm (for the moment, only svn, but more scm will arrive soon), allowing to provide a comment message every time a configuration screen is submitted. Incoming functionnalities will be discussed during the user meetup, too.
- Last but not the least : the plugin compattester (http://ci.jenkins-ci.org/job/plugin-compat-tester/ws/reports/PluginCompatReport.xml) (authentication on jenkins over jenkins needed) job allowing to generate reports on compilation & tests results of plugins against different jenkins core versions.
