Justifying Continuous Integration Expenditure
Our friend the Build Doctor, tries to quantify spending on continuous integration. In the comment thread on another related post of his, he strikes gold with:
People are more expensive than Continuous Integration servers; let’s optimise the system for them....
This week we had 18 plugin releases, with the xUnit plugin managing to have a release almost every day. For this edition of TWiP I was actually able to generate the log of releases mostly automatically thanks to rpetti who contributed the script to the contiuous-blog-tools repository on GitHub.
This past week saw two new plugins, the SSH plugin and the Global Build Stats plugin,...
Via the @hudsonci twitter account I typically share or "retweet" a number of links during the day, I realize a number of people either do not use Twitter or do not constantly pay attention to it. A lot of the links I find quite interesting, so I'd like to try sharing them after the fact here.
Java.net Maven Repository Rescue Mission on March...
Are you working on a project which uses java.net's Maven repository for deploying its artifacts?

Hyperic builds enterprise systems monitoring and management software and also contributes to a number of open source projects, many of which are built with Hudson.
To date I must say that Doug's use of Hudson is one...
This past week PyCon has been going on in Atlanta, where Titus Brown gave a talk titled:
Why not run all your tests all the time? A study of continuous integration systems
Titus has some notable quotes "just use Hudson" but overall a good introduction of CI and a breakdown of some of the challenges behind continuous integration. He also does a good job...
One of my favorite bloggers on the subject of continuous integration, The Build Doctor, posed this question in a recent post:
Continuous Integration in the cloud: good idea?
The topic of running a CI server in a virtualized environment, such as with Amazon's EC2 service, is an interesting issue, particularly in the Hudson community. About 10 months ago Kohsuke announced the Hudson EC2 plugin...
