Hudson Enables Development in the Cloud
For those of you watching the various keynotes and general sessions at Oracle OpenWorld this week, the Oracle cloud strategy should be pretty evident. For the Hudson team it was an exciting event, specifically because of the new Oracle Developer Cloud Service. At the heart of this cloud offering for developers is Hudson providing all the CI goodness required by today’s developers. At a technical level (to be more specific), Oracle are using Hudson 3.0 Release Candidate 3, but they will upgrade to production when that arrives shortly. Hudson is matched with GIT, Maven, Wiki and task tracking for a neat and compelling developer platform, particularly when paired with Mylyn for enhanced IDE integration.
The Oracle Developer Cloud Service takes advantage of Hudson’s pluggable update centre capability to control the list of plugins available on the hosted platform
Exciting times indeed, we’ll be keeping an eye on this story as it evolves.
