A nice update straight from Jesse's hat: the "Fast Archiver " plugin just went through a major update (details here ) that makes use of a major new extension point in Jenkins 1.532.
Consequently, if you are using a version of Jenkins above or equal to v1.532 is the ability to use fast archiving for Maven projects as well as“freestyle” projects .
Rather than using a trick to mimic the standard “archive artifacts” post-build step (as in 4.1 and earlier versions), the standard archive publisher can now be used unmodified, while asking this Jenkins Enterprise plugin to perform the actual network transfer in a more efficient manner.
Give it a go and let us know how it works for you!
