Subject Simplest log file and email for nightly builds
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2001 21:04:02 GMT
Howdy, all.

I have been tasked with turning our ANT script into an honest to God 
nightly build system.

We have roughly a dozen build files, which take a total of about ten 
minutes to build from scratch.

We would like to have them called one after another, until the first one 
that fails, or until the entire build is successful.  Ideally, we would get 
an HTML page out of it, and then a status email, at least if the build failed.

How are other people doing this?

A top level build file, which does an ANTCALL on each of the underlying 

A "reformat" task that gathers the resulting log.xml files into a single 
html file?

An email task?  I believe the "junit test" pages have an example of this 
kind of task, so I am more after people's observations on what worked here.
