I want to create a basic web dashboard for Jenkins view with help of Jenkins XML API , Pharo, Seaside and Bootstrap. The biggest benefit for me would be if I can learn how to handle with Classes and its instances containing data from Jenkins in pure object programming language.
My goal is to display overall status of the collections in form of progress bars (as openQA does) with info about failed and succeeded slenkins-testcases. Collection view (eg. https://slenkins.suse.de/jenkins/view/Collections-review/) in Jenkins contains list of current SLES builds and each collection has subprojects containing slenkins-testsuites triggered by Jenkins CI for this SLES build.
Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP.
I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.
