Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-564) Change focus of build from projects to Build Definitions
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2006 11:19:40 GMT
Change focus of build from projects to Build Definitions

         Key: CONTINUUM-564
     Project: Continuum
        Type: Wish

  Components: Core system  
    Versions: 1.0.2    
    Reporter: Geoff Gibbs

Rather than using projects as the mian focus for continumms build system, why not use the
build definitions?

For example:
Currently If I have a project with 3 build definitions, each scehduled to run nightly at 1,2
and 3am then the first will be triggered at 1am, the Project will be in a "Building" state
and the cvs update will take place, assuming changes have been made the required build is
then run.

Assume a change is made before 2am.

At 2am the second build definition is triggered and agian the Project will be in a "Building"
state, if I were to view the "Show projects" page now, I would not know if the first build
was taking over an hour or if the second build is taking place as the focus is on the project,
not the build definition.

Finally at 3am the next build is trigger, but nothing has changed, so the third build definition
is never built.

It seems more sensible for the Show Projects page to be replaced with a show build definitions
page and for the build definitions to be named (currently I have to examine the output to
see which build definition was used for a given build of a project.
