Installing Hudson as a Windows service

To install the Windows service:

  • Make sure Java is available on the PATH.

  • Make sure Maven is installed.

  • Start Hudson (see previous step).

  • Browse to the Hudson web interface, http://localhost:8080/

  • Click on Manage Hudson.

  • Click on Install as Windows Service.

  • Enter the Installation Directory. I entered /tools/hudson/ (Note: probably better to make this a different folder to the one where Hudson was started).

  • Start the Hudson services from the Windows services dialog.

To uninstall the Windows service:

cd /tools/hudson/
hudson.exe uninstall
