With this plugin, you can monitor your Hudson server from the comfort of you desktop tray, and even run programs when things change (or not).
Now released through Hudson's update center. Old download link for version 0.7.2: http://www.smarterthings.co.uk/hudson/hudsontrayapp.hpi
The Tray icon can also show the worst weather across the worst jobs (showing this information is disabled by default, but can be enabled). This helps to provide further feedback about the state of the jobs being monitored.
When the user right mouse buttons on their tray, they will get a list of all the jobs that share the worst colour, and a health icon (if the Hudson server > 1.172) of each Job. The user can simply click on one of the jobs and that jobs Hudson page will be launched on the users default browser.:
Finally, the user can specify a system command to be executed every time the application updates the statuses, and can run specific files for almost any change in overall state. For example, you could execute a command to change the colour of an Orb when the build status worsens.
The same as for the simple version except you have control over what the Tray Application actually does.
Now you can configure the server(s) that the application monitors. Note that when you exit the application, the application saves the settings to reload on next run.
Note that the in order to install the plugin, you require a minimum version of Hudson of 1.172. Using the client application, you can connect to other versions of Hudson. The end user machines must have a JNLP aware application installed. Typically this is Java Web Start installed by Java as a default. Further the end machines need a minimum of Java 1.4.2 installed, or where this isn't, the user account must have permission to install this version of Java from the web.
