titleUpdating slave.jar

Technically speaking, in this set up you should update slave.jar every time you upgrade Hudson to a new version. However, in practice slave.jar changes infrequently enough that it's also practical not to update until you see a fatal problem in start-up. Clever folks have also set things up so that their slave launch script would automatically update slave.jar, too.

Have master launch slave agent on Windows

For Windows slaves, Hudson can use the remote management facility built into Windows 2000 or later (WMI+DCOM, to be more specific.) In this set up, you'll supply the username and the password of the user who has the administrative access to the system, and Hudson will use that remotely create a Windows service and remotely start/stop them.

This is the most convenient set up on Windows.
