by Jonathan Allen on  Oct 19, 2011

Imagine you are doing maintenance on an application from the late 90’s that uses the classic ADO libraries.

by Alex Blewitt on  Jun 06, 2011 1

At a recent Jenkins meeting, the discussion turned towards whether a reconciliation with the Hudson project was possible (after the Hudson proposal to move to Eclipse.org was released), and what would be required for that to happen.

by Alex Blewitt on  May 11, 2011 19

With the recent proposal to move Hudson to the Eclipse Foundation, there has been speculation as to whether this will lead to a coming together of Jenkins and Hudson, or even whether the code can be relicensed under the EPL.

by Michael Floyd on  Apr 20, 2011 7

Late last month Google released Guice 3.0, a Java framework that implements the dependency injection (DI) design pattern.
