Running JenkinsFileRunner as a Service

Session Description

The efforts to embrace Kubernetes started a few years back in the Jenkins Community. The current Kubernetes plugin is based on Jenkins Agents running as a sidecar for the *builder* container, and this sidecar handles all the communications with the Controller. On the other hand, another initiative was to create JenkinsfileRunner(JFR), which makes it possible to run ephemeral Jenkins pipelines, with a custom configuration. This is not an easy path, and this is what I am will try to explain.
