Subject RE: [JENKINS] [IMPORTANT] - Jenkins Migration and Upgrade (And JDK7 deprecation)
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2017 22:01:23 GMT
Hi,

Instead of native Maven build jobs, the easy workaround is:

- Use a standard Freestyle Job
- Check the right JDK version
- Use the "Tool Environment" plugin and select correct Maven version, e.g. MAVEN_3_5_0_HOME
- Enter the Maven execution into the shell command line and use the "Tool Environment" defined
env var to locate the Maven executable (e.g., "${MAVEN_3_5_0_HOME}/bin/mvn").

We use a similar approach for our smoker tests that run with multiple JVM versions (7 and
8 for Lucene 5). The second JVM version is just exported by the "Tools Environment" plugin.
