Mylyn Builds and Hudson (Jenkins) Integration

Have you tried Mylyn Builds yet? Well, you should!

I’ve been using the Mylyn Builds Hudson/Jenkins integration extensively for the past few weeks and all I can say is awesome. As developers, we tend to spend a lot of time switching between Eclipse and something else, like a browser pointing to build results. With Mylyn Builds, I’m able to see build results within Eclipse and can even open the test results in the JUnit view and re-run any test failures. This alone helps with time savings on my end when it comes to dealing with build failures. In the end, this reminds me of my experience when first using Mylyn to work with Bugzilla… I spend more time in Eclipse working on what I need to.

Anyways, enough of me talking about it… give it a try and see yourself!
