Tool Labels Plugin 2.0 for Hudson & Jenkins

December 2, 2014

I just released Tool Labels Plugin 2.0 both for Hudson and for Jenkins this time. I hope you can see it on the Update Center soon.

To describe the plugin for those who do not know it yet, it allows Hudson or Jenkins users to add labels dynamically to every node with a specific tool installation. For example, if you need to build or test your software with JDK 1.6 but you do not want to install such an old version automatically installed on many nodes, you can add jdk1.6 as a label to the JDK 1.6 installation. Then, if you set the tool path of JDK 1.6 on the nodes on which it is installed, those nodes will have jdk1.6 dynamically as a label and you can restrict nodes to run your job by that label.

Of course, this plugin is not limited just to JDK. You can use it for Maven, Ant, MSBuild, or any other tool if you can set tool paths for it per node.
