Do not pin the Java version used to run maven

The EGit and EGit-Github maven builds have been made to be able to
use any Java >= 1.8 for running the maven build. They will execute
the tests on a Java version determined by the BREE specified in the
MANIFEST.MF files (currently JavaSE-1.8).

The mechanism relies on the CI infrastructure providing a maven
toolchain definition for at least that BREE.

EGit Jenkins Pipelines

This repository contains the EGit Jenkins pipeline library.

For general information about Jenkins pipeline shared libraries see the Jenkins documentation.

Jenkins pipelines are written in Groovy; for development in Eclipse it may help to install the Groovy Development Tools. Be aware, though, that GDT patches the JDT Java compiler; a particular version of GDT thus works only with a particular version of JDT. If you use an Eclipse I-build (nightly development build for the next release), GDT will fail to install.

The library is intended to be used for the Jenkins builds of the egit/egit and the egit/egit-github repositories.

It provides several kinds of general pipelines that can be configured:

  • verifyBuild is a simple pipeline that builds and runs the tests for a Gerrit patch set.
  • productBuild is intended to be run when a Gerrit patch set is submitted and builds a full distribution (nightly or stable build).

uiNode encapsulates the general Jenkins slave setup to run a build including UI tests on a JIRO node.

Directory src contains auxiliary Groovy classes encapsulating generally useful operations.
