Re: [jersey-dev] CI builds

What is an automated smoke-profile test actually proving? If it succeeds this guarantees rather nothing as we do not know if any of the tests outside of the smoke profile would have failed. So while smoke-only testing is good to get the project infrastructure initially set up and running, in the mid term we need to make ALL tests succeed on Travis.

The plan is to use Travis. As you know, Jersey tests take more than what is allowed to take in Travis. For this, we created a "smoke" profile, which takes only about 30 minutes to run. This is in pull request: Once the Travis is setup and able to run tests, and it would be possible to run the tests with pull requests, we can start dealing with pull requests, and be quite sure they do not break anything. Sounds good?

We would like to have Travis setup next week.
