Jenkins Automation

Hi All,

I have been assigned a task to do build automation using jenkins which should perform checkout, compile & build automatically.

Existing set up - Currently we have PVCS installed in one of our AIX server where build process(checkout,compile,build) is automated using ant script.

I have installed jenkins in my windows server.

How do i get the code into my windows server from PVCS which resides in AIX server to perform build through jenkins.

Thanks in advance.

Puli,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Does your Jenkins instance have the PVCS pluginyet? If not, your first step is to install it. Then you can choose the PVCS radio button when configuring your job.

Also, I noticed you posted the same question on StackOverflow We are fine with people posting the same question in multiple places. We just ask that you post a link so we know that was done. It gets frustrating to spend time helping someone only to find out they already got the answer elsewhere.

In this case, I've linked it in both directions for you, so you are good!

Thanks for your reply Jeanne.

I have installed the PVCS plugin.

Will i be able to checkout and download the code to my windows server if i configure PVCS in the jenkins job or do i need to install GIT repository in my windows server to clone with PVCS to get the code to my windows server.

Puli,
Git and PVCS are different version control systems. Since your code is in PVCS, you use PVCS to check it out from Jenkins.

Thanks for the clarification.

From your reply i understood that i can checkout the code to my windows server from pvcs(residing in AIX server) by configuring jenkins job.

Correct me if i am wrong

There's an example on the project documentation page:


image from https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org

In your StackOverlow post, you say you only know a URL in a browser. I think you are going to have to ask your PVCS administrator for connection information. And credentials for that matter since Jenkins wouldn't be using your username and password.
