Separate "configure tools" page

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Currently if you want to manage tool installations in a Jenkins instance, you just go to the master /configure page. Unfortunately this can get out of hand: when there are a lot of tools already (such as twenty dot-dot JDK releases), regular Jenkins configuration can get lost in the mess.

      The configureTools branch (see URL) proposes to split tool installations off into their own configuration page for comfort.

      Open issues:

      1. All tools are shown on a single page, though it may also be feasible to produce one page per tool type (Ant, Maven, JDK, ...); or one page with tabs, if there were a clear meaning for Save and Apply in that case.
      2. The management link uses the same setting.png as the main /configure page; probably needs its own icon.
      3. TBD whether other bits of configuration belong in the new location, notably ToolLocationNodeProperty and Shell.DescriptorImpl - should there be a way of indicating that a given Descriptor would like to be rendered on an alternate config page?
