Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Gerrit and Jenkins, tips and news

I would argue that the more tedious problem is having tests that sometimes fail. I've been waging a war against intermittent test failures in JBoss Tools for years. Some have been fixed by rewriting, some removed, and some fixed by upgrading the infrastructure (eg., giving slave nodes more RAM or more disk). 

Another way to manage this problem is to install the Naginator plugin to your JIPP: "Naginator is a plugin that schedules a new build immediately following a build failure, thereby nagging the project members that the build is failing." Can be configured to define number of rebuilds, frequency of rebuilds, etc.

For those of you who use a JIPP to build Gerrit patch sets, you may have noticed that the user "Hudson CI" has been renamed to "CI Bot". This is purely cosmetic.

Also, the documentation about how to setup the Gerrit trigger Jenkins plugin has been revamped and is now available here

I would like to draw you attention to the possible triggers you can setup ( Many of you want to re-trigger a build when it fails (e.g., because of flaky tests). It can be tedious to have to go to Jenkins just to do that. The Gerrit trigger Jenkins plugin is not only able to trigger a build on a new patch set. It lets you define triggers on comment values (e.g., if a comment contains "run CI"). Have a look at the previous link for an example.
