Subject RE: Auto-increment a x.x.x.x build number?
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2002 03:29:03 GMT
Hi again,

Nope. What we are doing is tracking the defects/builds/fixes via a x.x.x.x build version.
I need to auto-increment and include this build number in my application. I could just as
easily do the single <buildnumber/> and add the x.x.x, but the idea is to have this
all automated. I want to set it at then have it increment until we go into beta. I
forget the 4 positions, but I think it is Release (production), update, fix, build. So, when
we release the product, it will become If there is a fix, it becomes As
we do more builds on a given fix, it might be like When there is a new minor release,
a patch, it will be and so on. The idea is to track specific builds for defects and
keep a history of it.

If you can provide a snippet that can auto-increment the values, that would be great. Otherwise,
I would agree that the <buildnumber/> is enough to get by. For the most part, I could
update the other 3 x.x.x values. I'd just like to automate the whole thing if possible. As
for WHEN a.b.c.d D increments C and so on, well, that is a good question. Ideally, come to
think of it, we would do this oursevles. So, you know what, perhaps the build number is ok?
Maybe you know better than I? I guess all the other values would pretty much be done manually
with only the nightly build number changing on a specific version. What about the case with
mulitple branches? Probably the same thing, each having their own build number. Is that what
you do, reset the buildnumber to 0 when you are working on a new build?

Last time I checked, 120wpm (once I've had my coffee :)

Anyway, to the business at hand... I could probably put an example
together for you -- but at this point I'm very confused about why you need
to allow for four numbers if you're only tracking it for 60 days. Even
allowing for manual builds -- four number positions would allow for about
a zillion, wouldn't it? Or have I completely misunderstood what you really
want to do?
