This plugin creates a new version number and stores it in the environment variable whose name you specify in the configuration. In many cases, the hudson build number isn't rich enough to express the information you'd like the version number to have, and generating externally (as part of the build) may not be an optimal solution. This plugin allows you to generate a version number that contains much more information.

Format String Elements

Every character in the version number format string is passed through to the final version number, with the exception of variables enclosed in ${}. For example, the version format string 1.0.${BUILDS_THIS_YEAR}, if this were the 10th build this calendar year, would return 1.0.10.

The following are valid variables for use in the version number format string:

name

function

BUILD_DATE_FORMATTED

Takes the second argument and returns a java-formatted date string for the given build date. For example, ${BUILD_DATE_FORMATTED, "yyyy-MM-dd"} would return the date (and not the time) as something like 2009-10-01. The date format string must be surrounded by quotes, and any whitespace within the format string is significant.

BUILD_DAY

With no arguments, it just returns the day of the build as an integer. If there is an argument, it takes the number of characters in the argument and uses that pad the date string. For example, if it's the third of the month, ${BUILD_DAY} would return 3, ${BUILD_DAY, X} would return 3, and ${BUILD_DAY, XX} would return 03.

BUILD_MONTH

Returns the month, with the same argument convention for BUILD_DAY

BUILD_YEAR

Returns the year, with the same argument convention for BUILD_DAY

BUILDS_TODAY

Returns the number of builds that have happened today, including this one. This resets at midnight. The argument convention is the same as for BUILD_DAY

BUILDS_THIS_MONTH

Returns the number of builds that have happened this month, including this one. This resets at the first of the month. The argument convention is the same as for BUILD_DAY

BUILDS_THIS_YEAR

Returns the number of builds that have happened this year. This resets at the first of the year. The argument convention is the same as for BUILD_DAY.

MONTHS_SINCE_PROJECT_START

The number of months since the project start date. This is strictly dependent on the month of the current build and the month of the project start date; if the project was begun October 31st and the build was November 1st, then this would return 1. If the project was begin October 1st and the build was November 30th, this would also return 1. The argument convention is the same as for BUILD_DAY.

YEARS_SINCE_PROJECT_START

The number of years since the project start date. Like MONTHS_SINCE_PROJECT_START, this is dependent only on the year;

(anything else)

Any other argument enclosed in ${} is replaced by an environment variable of the same name if one is available, or failing that, is just ignored. This can be used to integrate source control version numbers, for example.
