The goal: To monitor the health of your continuous build process with Small Programmable Object Technology. SPOTs are small wireless devices that run Java programs. An article shows how to turn a new, open source wireless device — Sun's Small Programmable Object Technology (SPOT) — into a highly visible indicator of the health of a continuous integration build.
