I am doing a java webapp which needs to react on git pushes. It doesnt have to do much, when a push happens it should call a service method with a list of changed files when the service returns true it should let the push through otherwise it should reject it.

Google says that this can be implemented with a pre-recieve hook and i found the GitServlet in org.eclipse.jgit.http.server. I managed to clone a repository from the Servlet but now I have a problem: I couldnt find any documentation for this package.

What kind of config does it take?
Do you have to extend it to configure it?
Are there any examples?

I dont really want to run a full gitblit and write a groovy hook since I dont need authentication, ...... I just need hooked pushes into one repo.

Javadoc is available on Maven central [1]. Have a look at Gitblit and Gerrit implementation,
both are open source and use the GitServlet.

JGit doesn't support the hooks understood by native git.

Thank you for your reply.

I already found GitBlit and his util methods were really helpful.
I know have a running GitServlet and a PreRecieveHook. I only have one problem left.
In my hook, I need to parse the contents of some files being pushed. But the files only consist as packs in my repository. Is there an easy way to get the files pushed?
Or to unpack certain files?

I have found an acceptable solution.
I switched the server repo to non-bare and call a checkout on the new SHA Hash. I just have to cleanup in the PostRecieveHook. Works quite well.
