[JIRA] Created: (HUDSON-7093) Block until Xvnc server has finished starting-up

Hudson issues mailing list
Block until Xvnc server has finished starting-up

                 Key: HUDSON-7093
                 URL: http://issues.hudson-ci.org/browse/HUDSON-7093
             Project: Hudson
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: xvnc
            Reporter: orrc

It would be useful if the Xvnc plugin could block until the Xvnc server has finished starting-up, rather than passing control to the next plugin immediately.

This would be useful for applications that are started at the beginning of the build, or by other plugins.  To give one example, see the Android Emulator plugin (and associated HUDSON-6912).

Possibly we could keep polling TCP port (5900 + $DISPLAY) until it becomes bound, and block until then (or time out)?

I'm not sure whether there can be a universal solution for all VNC servers (e.g. do they all use TCP?), I but thought I'd put it in JIRA and see if there's any opinion.
