Overview

Jenkins is a continuous integration server that can be used to automatically build and test projects based on commits to your source control system.

Use with FPC/Lazarus

This section describes how to set up Jenkins to automatically build FPC when a commit happens in SVN.

Jenkins set up

A possible version to use is Turnkey Linux Jenkins on Debian 6.0.5 (Squeeze)

Whichever way you install Jenkins, make sure the SVN plugin is enabled

#install binutils+stable FPC:
apt-get instal build-essential
#fpc would get old FPC 2.4 on this Debian Squeeze=> symptom in Jenkins build log:

#get stable compiler (2.6 at time of writing); we're on a 32 bit system:

#no idea what the other .debs are for that we downloaded
#todo: this could be trimmed down a bit, but this seems to work

Setting up jobs

Use the job screen to set the svn source to the FPC trunk or branch you want to use (e.g. http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/trunk)

Set 'use svn update as much as possible'

Polling every 5 minutes could be a good setup. Alternatively, you can set up your own SVN server and write a commit hook script for that. This would result in this entry:

# every 5 minutes
*/5 * * * *

As build commands, the shell commnds

make all

and, to install inside the "workspace" or top of the build directory environment:

make install PREFIX=$WORKSPACE

Note: installing somewhere else may be a good idea, please refer to the Build FAQ.

Enhancements

Possible enhancements:

  • run make clean before building
  • run make install into a different prefix
  • run Lazarus compile
  • run compiler test suite, save results
  • run dbtestframework test suite, save results (in database or via XML if Jenkins supports that)
  • add Windows (etc) build slaves
  • add installer builders
  • different repositories
