Java Annotation Processors - Creating Configurations

In the second section, we would like to focus on generating configuration files for a simple plugin library. To do this, we will write an annotation processor that exports all classes which are annotated with an `@Extension` annotation to an XML file. In addition to the full name of the class, the Javadoc for the class is also written to the XML file. Additionally, we will write a class that allows us to read these files from the classpath.

Coding Continuous Delivery—Helpful Tools for the Jenkins Pipeline

After the first two parts of this series discuss the basics and the performance of Jenkins Pipelines, this article describes useful tools and methods: Shared libraries allow for reuse for different jobs and unit testing of the Pipeline code. In addition, the use of containers with Docker offers advantages when used in Jenkins Pipelines.

Coding Continuous Delivery—Performance optimization for the Jenkins Pipeline

If you’ve ever used a conventional CI tool to set up a Continuous Delivery pipeline by chaining individual jobs without any direct pipeline support, then you’ll know just how complicated this can get. In this article series, we’ll explain how a pipeline can be defined as code in a central location using the Jenkins pipeline plugin. In the first part of this article series, we’ll take a look at the basics and share some practical tips for getting started.

post icon SVN Repository Server Load Balancing and Synchronization

April 01, 2014 / by Daniel Huchthausen / In Software Craftsmanship

SVN Repository Server Load Balancing and Synchronization

In our support work of the recent past we saw that the topic of SVN repository synchronization seems to be a current issue. Therefore we want to show you how you can implement a master/slave server structure for load balancing. Slave servers are used for read operations and the master for write operations.

post icon Permission Management with LDAP Groups

December 06, 2013 / by Daniel Huchthausen / In Software Craftsmanship

Permission Management with LDAP Groups

After you downloaded SCM-Manager Universe the permission management for the development tools is based on individual user permissions. Since there seems to be a great interest in using group based permission management we want to show you how. We will show which modifications you have to perform in the tools and how you can handle groups.
