For the records buildhive kind of worked for Hibernate Validator. At

Sanne said, the setup was almost too easy to be true.
However, there are indeed too many false positives. I have not been able to figure out
the problem is (not a timeout issue). Test would randomly fail and then pass without
code changes on the next build. Probably worth watching build hive to see where there
going. I am happy to try cloudbee provided we get a free account.
On "where they are going", it seems to me it's an easy catch for
customers towards the full platform: you'll likely always get
more/better configuration options on the full one.
I'm sure we can get a free account, I just wanted to know we agree on
getting one as I'd need to impersonate "Hibernate", or maybe Steve can
Plus we have some experience with it (mostly Galder), have a look at:
I guess the interface will look familiar, so really not much new to
learn.. it's a quick and free way to add more nodes to our build
It seems the pull-request-monitoring plugin isn't available yet so
there's no rush, but it would be nice to start offloading some work
from our QA lab which would be nice for those tasks not strictly
requiring a specific OS or database vendor/version.
For example I have no clue on why Hibernate Search builds seem dead -
I think our lab is overloaded - so I'd like to setup a job there.
