> Do we need xvnc plugin for jenkins while running on windows platform?
You should ask the jenkins-user mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/jenkinsci-users
Windows does not use the X standard for display, so I'm pretty sure
neither Xvfb no Xvnc plugins will work directly. Maybe there is another
way to provide a similar "job-specific display" for Windows, but I'm not
aware of it.
A possible workaround is to start an instance Cygwin/X before you run
your tests, but I've no idea how well it could be working.
You should consider using Linux for your test execution since those
plugins allow you to run different test jobs in parallel. You could set
it up on a Virtual Machine such as KVM or VirtualBox.
