Hudson is a continuous integration (CI) tool written in Java, which runs in a servlet container, such as Apache Tomcat or the GlassFish application server. It supports SCM tools including CVS, Subversion, Git and Clearcase and can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven based projects, as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands.
This project is now a mature Eclipse technology project. The main project summary information page can be found here. On this page you can find the schedules and plans for future versions
The Hudson Wiki is being transitioned to its new home under Eclipse at wiki.eclipse.org/hudson-ci. Most of the documentation that you will need can be found there, as well as the Hudson Book of course!
I think that one of the reasons that Hudson is "the bomb" is because of
its simplicity to implement. A new user can get an instance up and
running without any expertise. An experienced user can leverage its
tremendous capabilities. I’ve worked with other commercial
products that required paid tech support (usually bad), a hard learning
curve and less capabilities, flexibility and speed.
