External Fingerprint Storage Phase-1 Updates

Externalizing fingerprint storage for Jenkins is a Google Summer of Code 2020 project. We are working on building a pluggable storage engine for fingerprints (see JEP-226). File fingerprinting is a way to track which version of a file is being used by a job/build, making dependency tracking easy. The fingerprint engine of Jenkins can track Read more about External Fingerprint Storage Phase-1 Updates[…]

Hands On: Beautify the user interface of Jenkins reporter plugins

For Jenkins a large number of plugins are available that visualize the results of a wide variety of build steps. There are plugins available to render the test results, the code coverage, the static analysis and so on. All of these plugins typically pick up the build results of a given build step and show Read more about Hands On: Beautify the user interface of Jenkins reporter plugins[…]
