|Information for Hudson Developers|
This page provides information for developers who either want to contribute to (or understand) Hudson and those wanting to write plugins for Hudson (see also Extending Hudson)
Development for Hudson as a whole is split into two overarching projects. The Hudson core and primary plug-ins are maintained here at Eclipse. Although anyone can pull the source code for this project contributions are slightly more controlled (see Submitting a Patch for Non-Committers). The other half of the project is the Hudson-Plugins project at Java.net. This project is open to anyone who wants to create and maintain a plugin. Generally the plugins are all licensed with the MIT license rather than the EPL. This article relates to the code associated with the Eclipse maintained codebase.
The Hudson Project maintains it's source code in a series of GIT repositories which partition the project into modules. The list below shows the set of repositories.
Working with the Source
To work with a particular module click on the link above for the repository that you want to work with. On the summary tab of that page you will see a section towards the bottom of the page (labelled Clone) which provides the list of clone targets.
For example, Hudson Core clone targets are:
To work with the source you should clone the appropriate repository:For committers:
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/hudson/org.eclipse.hudson.core.git
When cloning from behind a firewall remember to set your HTTP_PROXY appropriately.
For general information about GIT at Eclipse refer to the GIT page in Eclipsepedia. Thsi provides information on setting up SSH keys etc.
