Subject wanted ideas for managing project build dependancies..
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2005 11:24:24 GMT
our build system is growing rapidly. we've gone from using wsad to build 
each war/ear manually, to having ant scripts for building each item, and 
wrapping it together with a main "autobuild" project which basically checks 
out each sub project and calls it's build. now we're looking to integrate 
versioning into the mix. there's maybe 14 projects total, and continually 
growning. the structure is something like:


where project2Web is the war project, and project2 is the ear project. for 
no good reason, we have each war wrapped into an ear. this practice 
continues today. back on track. like i mentioned, the autobuild ties 
everything together. it does a cvs co on each project, then iterates the 
builds. we've recently branched project2Web and project2 to allow new 
development to happen while testing finishes up on a version of project1Web 
and project2Web that are slated for production soon. so, i'm looking for a 
good method for managing the cvs branch dependancies of projects. 
project1Web is still in the head, as there's no real reason to branch yet. 
one suggestion made from our group was to branch the autobuild project, and 
in there checkin the build.xml or properties file containing a list of the 
needed cvs branches.

any thoughts / ideas on managing the revolving cvs dependancies in projects 
like this is much appreciated.!
