A user in ##java recently ran into a problem where he needed to connect Jenkins slaves to a master, using SSL – and it didn’t work, thanks to security. He helpfully wrote up how using correct policy files got it working.
Jenkins is a continuous integration server – basically an application that runs your builds when changes occur in your source tree. Slaves allow the build to take place on different hardware configurations, as well as providing horizontal scalability to your builds.
Good stuff, and thanks!
