There is a nice post that tells how to tweak Hudson to run a build triggered by a post-commit hook on your subversion server.
There is a problem, that arises if we have a Hudson deployment that is password-protected. Then wget just returns Unauthorized , because he is first diverted to the login page where he has to log in.
To get around this problem we need to create a Hudson USER identified by a PASSWORD . We may want to give this user limited permissions, e.g. build only.
Then the post-commit hook would look like the following (merge it into one line, no extra spaces):
wget -b http://HUDSON_URL/job/JOB_NAME/j_acegi_security_check?j_username= USER\&j_password=PASSWORD\&from=%2Fhudson%2Fjob%2FJOB_NAME%2Fbuild%3Ftoken= my_automated_build > /dev/null
The hook also contains the default code of sending an email:
/usr/share/subversion/hook-scripts/commit-email.pl \ "$REPOS" "$REV" firstname.lastname@example.org
You may want to comment it out.
