NetBeans and continous integration

Hi all,

Does NetBeans 6 provide support or has plug-ins for continous integration servers and tools?

I was a user of IntelliJIDEA and TeamCity and I loved the way the ide, the repository and continous integration server were joined together. Is there any similar architecture using NetBeans? (I've seen something similar for Eclipse)

Cheers,

Iv�n

I use NetBeans + CVS + Hudson quite effectively. In NetBeans I commit my projects to CVS. Hudson (https://hudson.dev.java.net/) in turn is configured to pull from CVS and build projects and run scans. There is also a NetBeans plugin that allows you to register a Hudson server and monitor your project builds in Hudson directly inside NetBeans.

Thanks!

I've been browsing in the Hudson wiki and it seems an interesting product. At the moment, I have to decide what integration tool to set up and it is clearly a tool to consider. Have you got experience with CruiseControl? Can you tell me the pros and cons (in your opinion) between CruiseControl and Hudson (or possibly any other tool)?

Cheers!

I've been using CruiseControl for some time but later switched to Hudson.

The reason? It is much much easier to setup and configure Hudson than CruiseControl.

You can setup continuous or daily build within minutes after downloading Hudson.

I agree with Vilmantas's comments. Hudson is extremely easy to setup, and also provides the ability to fully configure it through the browser, not need to edti config files.

Hi all,

You're right. I was able to set up Hudson quite quickly and easily. It's a great product: too easy to set up, a really nice and usable interface and with endless expansion possibilites.

I managed to integrate it with the SVN repository, the e-mail, the ant tasks, and many inspection tools in just half day.

I think that from now I won't be able to sleep without it.

Thanks!
