Jenkins und die APT-Repositories Ⅱ

As reported earlier (in “Jenkins und die APT-Repositories” part 1) we’ve got some kind of Jenkins/APT integration, with automatically generating as many repositories as a job desires.

News are that the builds host has moved, so the URIs to the repositories have changed. The new syntax is https://ci-something.lan.tarent.de/ for the Jenkins ⇒ “deb https://ci-something-debs.lan.tarent.de/jobname/ distribution suite …” and currently only usable in the company-internal network.

We’ve also got some more magic mksh code to automate the entire process — check the code out from SCM (required, as Jenkins’ svn checkouts are broken), build a Debian source package, NEW! ask cowbuilder to compile it in a clean chroot environment, and call mvndput.sh for APT repository publication. Sample projects are ci-evolvis/virtualscreen (git) and ci-dev/portal-setup (svn). Talk to me if you have any questions.

This allows for a one-line “run a shell command” build step!

Everybody else is, of course, invited to take and re-use our code, and maybe even improve upon it and submit that back. It’s all Open Source, after all.


tl;dr Jenkins Jobs now have integration with cowbuilder. There’s a new script to automate the whole build pipeline. The APT repositories have moved with the recent move.
