Installing Jenkins for Use with TeamForge

This week I was working with a customer, helping to set up a sandbox environment for them, including helping them to build a local Jenkins server to use with TeamForge.  I’ve done this a few times now, but every time I end up back in the same places, figuring out the same things over again so this time, I’m going to document it for me, and for you.  There’s a pretty good chance, I think, that I’ll end up doing this again for a proof of concept with a prospective customer one day, so having this information handy will be… …

No longer restricted to open source projects or hi-tech start-ups, Git has become a serious tool in the arsenal of large enterprises, even in traditionally ,more conservative and regulated industries such as banking/insurance, federal and pharmaceuticals.  Developers love the fast merging & branching, and dev managers praise Git’s fit with Agile, collaborative software design principles.

What is Git History Rewrite? What is Git History Protection? Here’s the technical explanation of History Rewrite “We define History Rewrite as non-fast forward updates of remote refs and its associated objects. This happens whenever a branch in the remote repository gets deleted, previously pushed commits get amended/tree filtered and forcefully re-pushed, or a remote branch/tag is pointed to an entire different commit history.”   Sounds too technical?  We put together a short (3 minutes) video, that explains in simple term what History Rewrite (and History Protect) is, and why you probably should care: Watch Video (3 min) Now If you …
