About

The goal of this projects is to integrate Hudson with Mylyn. It will be part of Mylyn/Build after the restructuring of Mylyn. It should provided the following features:

  • Monitoring build statuses in Eclipse
  • Viewing build details in Eclipse
  • Running a build from within Eclipse
  • Viewing test results in Eclipse
  • Viewing a build log in Eclipse
  • Adding a task from a failed build in Eclipse

Details

Package structure

The project namespace will be org.eclipse.mylyn.hudson. The namespace for common build infrastructure will be org.eclipse.mylyn.builds.

Remote API

The project will consume the Hudson API via REST/XML with JAXB as marshaller (using the provided xml schemas).

Common Builds API

The common builds API should consist of at least the following components:

  • A builds view (See Bamboo and Cruise)
    • Flat or hierarchical -> probably both
  • Specialized task view for builds with the following parts
    • Summary
    • Tests (JUnit)
    • Code changes (depends on Mylyn SCM)
    • Build log
