Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-265) Concurrent builds
Date Sat, 10 Jan 2009 02:46:19 GMT


Maria Odea Ching commented on CONTINUUM-265:

Hi All,

I've staged another snapshot of the parallel builds branch (-r733009) at:

To get it working:
1. In the Configuration page, set Number of Allowed Builds in Parallel to a value greater
than 1 and save the changes.
2. Create a new Build Queue. You can create a few more if you want but you shouldn't be permitted
to create more than the Number of Allowed Builds in Parallel you've set in the configuration.
3. In the Schedules page, edit DEFAULT_SCHEDULE and select the Build Queues you want to attach
to it. These build queues would be used to distribute the checkouts/builds to be executed
when a build is triggered (either forced or scheduled as long as the build definition used
has the DEFAULT_SCHEDULE attached to it).
4. Add a number of projects (different project groups if possible) to Continuum. You should
be able to see in the Queues page the current checkout/builds executing and the queued tasks,
and to which Build Queue are these tasks executing or queued.

Step 3 is actually optional. If there are no build queues attached to a schedule, the parallel
builds manager would use the DEFAULT_BUILD_QUEUE. But in order to demonstrate concurrent builds,
we must attach multiple build queues to the schedule.

Comments, suggestions, feedback are welcome :)

If there are no major bugs found or no further changes in the implementation, I say we are
ready to merge the branch to trunk..
