This is just a short note. Will write more if I find the time.
Sometimes your script needs to know which version of
java is currently running on your environment. And on those occasions, I always found myself looking for the all conquering “Eierlegenderwollmilichsau” of methods on the internet. It needed to be:

However, as your project becomes more complex, you might find yourself needing other repositories or changes to the configuration. It is these changes which proved a little difficult to manage. Here is the setup as of today:
Welcome back to my mini-series on Jenkins X. In the last post I discussed how to enable TLS in your preview environments. This time around we will be discussing the Jenkins server and how we, here at Datameer, manage changes and updates to both jobs and configuration.
I’ll admit, it has taken me a little too long to write this post. Mostly because there are so many aspects and angles to it that I couldn’t decide on the right structure, often swapping out huge chunks of information, only to swap them back again half an hour later. …
Welcome back to the mini-series on Jenkins X. This section will be dedicated to setting up wildcard certificates and TLS for preview environments.
In my earlier post I discussed how to secure both:
That done, it was time to look at adding TLS to the dynamic preview environments Jenkins X provides.
