Jenkins Plugin

The mktmpio plugin for Jenkins integrates the mktmpio server with Jenkins so that any build can include a dedicated database server that is created at the start of the build and then automatically shutdown at the end. Because the provisioning takes less than 1 second, there is virtually no impact on build times.
