Subject Jenkins support for C++ builds, standard dependent components?
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:39:21 GMT

We have part of our project that is in C++.  We're looking into a Jenkins job
for CI for it. 

It requires as prerequisites: Apache APR, ICU, Xerces, and maybe some other
somewhat standard components.

When building on private machines, the technique is to obtain these by either
installing prebuilt versions, or first "building" these, more or less as a one
time operation (repeated sometimes when toolchain levels change).

What's the best practice on Apache Jenkins?  Are there a group of machines where
somewhat standard packages like the above are installed (at various versions)?
If so, is there a standard naming of these to find them?  If not, should each
build do its own build of these components, every time the build runs?

Thanks. -Marshall Schor (Apache UIMA project)
