Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-1995) Support reordering of build definitions

Support reordering of build definitions

                 Key: CONTINUUM-1995
             Project: Continuum
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Web interface
            Reporter: Aleksander Adamowski

In certain scenarios, separate different builds of a given project have to be executed in
a strictly defined order.

For example, when using the Maven 2 dashboard plugin to generate reports, one has to follow
a strict sequence of builds documented at
("mvn clean install site", then "mvn dashboard:persist", then "mvn dashboard:dashboard", then
"mvn site:deploy").

Currently the builds defined for a given project are executed in the same order that their
definitions were created. There's no UI to reorder them later. So if there's a need to insert
a new build definition in the middle of the definitions sequence, one has to first delete
all the later definitions, add the new definition, then re-add the previous definitions that
were deleted. This is quite a bit of effort and may introduce errors to build definitions.

A simple UI that would let the user move build definitions up and down the definition stack
would be of great assistance in this task.
