Hudson-bust.png 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)

Core Development

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 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.

Source control

The Hudson Project maintains it's source code in a series of GIT repositories which partition the project into modules.
