We are creating the fastest CICD platform in the world and we benchmark performance based on real-world usage. One area we needed improvement was during application build and test stages. We noticed significant time downloading dependencies and have been working on a solution for about two months.
The Tool cache is available immediately and each of our plans is getting it.
The integration with Jenkins is transparent and the Tool Cache obeys cache policies like TTLs and checksums.
To enable the Tool Cache check out the documentation in our confluence.
