Support Subscription

Sun Microsystems, Inc. offers Sun Continuous Integration Server (SCIS), which is a supported version of Hudson. This offering is designed to help organizations that depend on Hudson, and it is a part of a broader GlassFish Portfolio offering.


In a nutshell, the subscription includes:

  • Patch Releases: SCIS branches off public releases of Hudson every 6 months, and customers receive patch releases that only includes important bug fixes for 18 months. Unlike community versions of Hudson, these patch releases do not include new features that can cause regressions or other user experience changes, thereby providing stability that enterprises need.
  • Priority Bug Fixes: Bugs filed by customers are handled differently for faster turn-around time, and fixes are delivered in patch releases (in addition to normal community releases like all the other bugs do.)
  • Dedicated e-mail alias: Sun experts will answer your questions on a dedicated customer only e-mail alias.
