Adding an Eclipse project to Mike

November 5, 2009

Quick video demonstrating how easy it is to add a project to Mike. This demo takes you through the build job wizard and then runs the build. The project is a Spring based Java web application. Mike generates a build from the Eclipse meta-data. We have an Eclipse plug-in which can generate a Mike compatible project and we’ll be blogging about that very soon.

The build wizard steps are real-time, the only bit I’ve edited is the build duration (which took 56 seconds)!

Mike now also has a YouTube channel where we will post demos and how to guides.


Beta launch week

October 23, 2009

It’s been an exciting week at Mike HQ this week. Announcements for the Beta have gone out on the ServerSide and the JavaLobby. We’ve also had a few enquiries and, of course, sign-ups! People are now building their projects on our platform! It’s a very exciting time for us. We hope our beta users enjoy using the platform and we’re really looking forward to the feedback.

Maven2 support is a feature a number of people have asked us about.  It is something we are working on and we’ll keep you posted as to when we will add it to the Beta programme. It’s a key feature for the platform.

We’ve also started work on the Mike registration and account management application, agreeing the screen-flows, designs and functionality. This should give users a seamless registration process and the ability to add and remove users from their Mike account. We’ve also been extending the coverage of our Selenium tests for Mike and adding them to our nightly build cycle.

Have a good weekend!

Beta launched!

October 20, 2009

I’m very happy to announce that the we are ready to launch the MikeCI private beta. We’re doing a limited private beta for a number of reasons. Firstly, we want feedback on the platform. This is a great chance for people to get on board early and try our service out and let us know what they like or don’t like. We hopefully get great feedback and you get a free CI Server!

We’re also keen to ensure we can handle the stresses and strains of lots of people running build jobs. Doing this under a private beta allows us to add users in a controlled manner and double check everything is working as it should be before we go live. Finally the beta allows us to bed down our support and admin processes before a full launch. We’re not like Google – this beta period is limited to the end of November, so please get in touch soon if you want to sign up.

Announcements will be going out this week on various sites. Please say if you want to take part.
