This plugin lets you run an Xvnc session during a build. This is handy if your build includes UI testing that needs a display available.
Each build using the plugin gets its own display allocated from a free list, by default starting with :10 and ending with :99.
If there is some problem starting a display server with a given number, that number will be blacklisted
Note: you must have started the vncserver at least one time before you use it with hudson. This is to create a password. Otherwise Jenkins fails. This blog post describes how.
If you are running Windows you probably do not want this plugin. This blog post offers an alternative suggestion.
