The need for DevOps innovation has never been greater. Get the results from over 100 business value assessments in this whitepaper, Digital Darwinism: Driving Digital Transformation, to see the positive impact of DevOps first hand.

Unlike the previous episodes 2 and 3 where I was working on a Jenkins plugin, this episode is concentrating more on how we can use Jenkins more effectively.

When we only have a few repositories to deal with, it is reasonable to allow each repository to have its own build process. The Apache Maven project has many repositories to manage, so we need an easier way to share common configuration between repositories. In this episode, I discuss how we can achieve that. The next episode will be about making the shared configuration more flexible and also (and important goal for the Apache Software Foundation, but perhaps not for everyone else) how we can make the shared configuration reusable by others.
