Launch deamon process with Jenkins

A quick post to share with you how to launch a deamon process – like a webserver 🙂 – with jenkins on linux.


inside jenkins script will not work, trust me, jenkins will start your app and stop it.

If you want to do this you must force jenkins to ‘forget’ your process by overriding the BUILD_ID variable before launching your app.

Otherwise you process will be killed when the jenkins script finish.
