tip

You need to make sure that capitalisation of the case for the plugin in the
properties file is exactly: "AllocinePlugin" and not "allocineplugin"

tip

This is a bug when using Micromax devices with VideoView. You can either exclude these devices or look at this workaround: http://stackoverflow.com/a/31942841/4347859

You have a different solution? A short tip here would help you and many other users who saw this issue last week.

When the job is rerun the next build does the checkout no problem. I am aware of JENKINS-22199 and this looks very similar but JENKINS-22199 is meant to have been fixed in Subversion plugin 2.3.

  • We're building multiple projects checked out of SVN using Jenkins. Every once in a while they fail with this exception: FATAL: String index out of range: -1 java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1 For one particular project, which is quite small and involves checking out one item, half of the builds fail. Even when this exception is raised, the checkout seems successful (I compare the output to successful builds). Maybe it fails while trying to determine the list of changes? The checkout strategy is 'always check out a fresh copy'; for build triggers, I've set 'poll SCM' @midnight and 'trigger remotely'. IIRC the exception also happens for builds triggered remotely. Let me know if you need more info. Both the SVN and Jenkins servers are internal to the company.
