Considered Options

Decision Outcome

Chosen option: “TravisCI”, because

  • The build worklfow on Jenkins is hard to configure

  • Even though CircleCI offers to use a Docker image as basis and then executing arbitrary commands

  • Even though CircleCI offers to collect test results and presents them in aggregated form

  • Even though CircleCI offers to collect build artifacts and offers them to logged in users

  • Even though TravisCI sometimes throttles down builds (due to heavy load in the Eclipse organization)

  • CircleCI cannot be used at Eclipse projects
