Alternatively, if you have a servlet container that supports Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0, such as Glassfish v2, Tomcat 5 (or any later versions), then you can run them as services, and deploy hudson.war as you would any other war file. Container specific documentation is available if you choose this route.

Windows Installation

If you're running on Windows you might want to run Hudson as a service so it starts up automatically without requiring a user to log in. The easiest way is follow Installing Hudson as a Windows service. Alternatively, you can install a servlet container like GlassFish and Tomcat, which can run as a service by itself, and then deploy Hudson to it.

Since Hudson was written to work on unix-like platforms, some parts assume the presence of unix-utilities. It is advised to install these as well on Windows. Install UnxUtils (this includes a shell that seems to work with forward and backwards slashes and does globbing correctly), put it in the Windows PATH, and copy sh.exe to C:\bin\sh.exe (or whichever drive you use) to make shebang lines work. This should get you going.
