Force a Java 1.8 JDK

EGit needs to be built with Java 1.8 for backwards compatibility
reasons. It shall be possible to use EGit with older Eclipse versions
before 2020-09, which didn't require Java 11.

Set the toolchain explicitly to 'adoptopenjdk-hotspot-jdk8-latest' by
default. This default can be overridden via config option config.jdk.

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.
