ant build toolkit jenkins plugin


Michael Gray (86126) | asked Oct 21 '14, 3:03 p.m.
Has anyone explored the idea of a Jenkins plugin wrapper around some of the Ant build toolkit functionality? For example, it would be nice to have an easy way to call startBuildActivity and use some of the artifactPublisher calls without needing to have build.xml files around and invoke ant.  I can sort of envision a Jenkins plugin UI with a pulldown to select from a list of ant build toolkit calls, box(es) to supply strings, file list(s), etc., and advanced section to provide overrides for repository, userid, password[file]...

Build Forge does some of this "for free" like automatically creating activities to track Build Forge jobs' step progress.

I'm hoping to do likewise in Jenkins but thought I'd ask before reinventing the wheel..
