Hi,

Â

is it possible with jgit to get the latest tag? I couldnât find something.

Git.wrap(db). tagList() returns an unsorted list.

Would the DescribeCommand help? This is typically used in git to find the most relevant annotated tag for building a release version string. It depends what you want to do with the tag, I suppose. I typically script:

when deploying.


yes, either use the DescribeCommand [1] or have a look at its implementation if you want something slightly different.
