The Hudson Mylyn Connector, which also supports Jenkins, improves project visibility and productivity by providing direct access to Hudson from within the Eclipse IDE.
The connector makes it possible to work with Hudson day-to-day entirely from within the Eclipse IDE with support for running and monitoring builds as well as inspecting the results. The connector's rich integrated editor displays build information to provide a quick overview of test results, artifacts and changes for each build.
The connector takes advantage of task-focused interface technology, which provides automatic change set tracking, to provide visibility into your Hudson builds and the tasks that changed for a given build, creating traceability between tasks source and builds.
The Hudson Connector is included in Tasktop Dev Pro.
