normally I use the Hudson build slave configuration where the slave
doesn't actually run full Hudson setup but just a headless slave
setup. This setup can be configured in a way that the slave initiates
the connection to the master. Currently all the slaves in the
centralised setup connect using plain text connections as the boxes
are wired straight to each other but I think using SSL for slave
connection is possible as well and as far as I know the slave setup
should work using OpenJDK as well.

So in the normal scenario I add the slave to the central server, fetch
the slave.jar from central server and use this command

Hudson is currently changing name to Jenkins and I am updating the
build cluster over the weekend so don't be surprised if you see
"Jenkins" mentioned instead of "Hudson".
