Purpose

This plugin lets Jenkin manage your company truth 'upstream' repository – keeping it in a clean state by only pushing changesets which build successfully. Builds – and thus updates – are triggered when developers push to a specific designated repository.

Description

The system defined in this plugin depends on three parts: A company truth 'upstream' repository where developers can pull the latest stable version; a 'downstream' repository to which developers push their changes and from where Jenkins extract changesets in order to build them and possibly commit them to company truth; and thirdly – in the case of distributed SCMs – the local repositories where developers work.

Limitations

The current version is a minimal working example and – as it is under development – there are some constraints to the plugin as it is:

Setup

In order to get started using Pretested Integration, you need the three repositories described above: The 'upstream' and local repositories probably exist already. Otherwise, you must set up a remote Mercurial repository and clone it unto the clients. For both existing and new repositories it is worth considering disallowing pushes directly to the 'upstream' repository.

The 'downstream' repository is set up by this plugin upon configuration. At this point client repositories should change their default configuration for push-requests to point to this 'downstream' repository.

In Jenkins each job can be configured to use Pretested Integration from the job configuration page. Once selected, Jenkins will start building the job in question every time a developer pushes a changeset to the defined branch.
