Jenkins is a continuous integration (CI) server. It is in use on Eclipse servers for Eclipse projects as part of the Common Build Infrastrure (CBI). This page is about the hosted service at Eclipse.org. For more information on the project itself, or to download Jenkins, please see the Jenkins project page.
Since Hudson is not maintained anymore, Jenkins is the replacement for it. They share a common ancestry, but have diverged in the past. Eventually all Hudson Instances Per Project (HIPP) will be completely replaced by Jenkins Instances Per Project (JIPP). The migration will be slow in the beginning, to minimize risks and impact on the running build infrastructure.
