Join the chat at

Jenkins remoting is an executable JAR, which implements communication layer in Jenkins automation server. It's being used for master <=> agent(fka "slave") and master <=> CLI communications.

In general, this library contains the bootstrap code to bridge separate JVMs into a single semi-shared space. It includes: TCP-based communication protocols, data serialization, Java classloading.

The library is reusable outside Jenkins.


Remoting documentation is under development. More info will appear soon. Feel free to contribute.
