Subject [jira] [Created] (BUILDS-25) please consider providing Docker on Jenkins slaves
Date Sun, 05 Oct 2014 01:41:33 GMT
Roman Shaposhnik created BUILDS-25:

             Summary: please consider providing Docker on Jenkins slaves
                 Key: BUILDS-25
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BUILDS-25
             Project: Infra Build Platform
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Jenkins
            Reporter: Roman Shaposhnik

Docker (https://www.docker.com/) provides a very powerful set of tools around extremely lightweight
container environments. This is extremely useful in situations where builds need to be performed
in presence of certain system-level build dependencies and on different flavors of Linux.

With Docker, one can simply execute the following command as an entry point into a build script:
docker run -v `pwd`:/ws $DOCKER_IMAGE bash -c 'make foo'
and not require pollution of Jenkins slaves with system dependencies and installation of new
slaves. E.g. DOCKER_IMAGE=fedora would give you the latest fedora build environment.

It would be extremely useful to provide Docker service on ASF build slaves. Please let me
know how can I help.
