Java Web Start slave a service


  • Want to set-up a Windows slave as a service using Java Web Start


  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise


You just need to follow:

However, for MAC or Linux slaves, the recommend way is to use ssh slaves, since with Java Web Start you will always need to update slave.jar every time Jenkins is updated.

For Windows slaves, you can also use Cygwin+OpenSSH instead of Java Web Start. In this way, you will not need to update slave.jar on a Jenkins upgrade.
