Hi Andy,

It's more something like Control-M right [1] you're looking to build ?

Not wanting to curb your enthousiasm in any way, but would it not be
easier to piggyback the huge amount of framework code Jenkins already
has in place and just extend it with a new project type + a plugin ?
You'll be getting a lot of things for free that are tricky to get
right (think slave and remoting), not to mention the platform's
popularity and community.

Kind Regards,
Jorg Heymans
