I’m new to gitlab, so apologies in advance.
I was hoping to replace Jenkins with gitlab.com. We’re mostly a java shop with Gradle. We aren’t yet developing Kubernetes applications, so just looking to build and test JARs mostly.
Can I still use a GCP Kubernetes cluster for this? I configured one and then tried Auto DevOps for this project and it seems to be using Heroku runners.
Do I need to configure a runner on my GCP cluster for standard Java builds? I’m also assuming Auto will not be sufficient, so I assume I need to create runners in the cluster for the non-Auto use cases.
The docs have a bend toward build Kubernetes apps. I’d just like to use it for build and test pipelines.
