Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-1569) Release of a flat structure multi-module project doesn't work
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2009 11:10:45 GMT


Brett Porter commented on CONTINUUM-1569:

I think CONTINUUM-1657 is the right way to go (and there is probably other duplicates of that
issue). I've discussed this a couple of times, and started to work towards it last year -
I think what we want in a group is to checkout the common base and run the builds from the
one checkout. But there are complications to this - the group would need to have one scm update
mechanism, for example. On the up side, less network traffic and disk is used for the parent

While we should take on a direction towards this, in the short term I think I would go with
a more basic approach - allow a project group to use one working directory by a checkbox configuration.
When in that mode, you can set them up in the right structure without worrying about handling
the nesting case (nested projects should be disallowed in that mode).

As for releases - as long as it works on checkouts in the same mode it should work. It currently
looks for the parent and checks that out, but instead it should seek the commons SCM root
and check that out.

I would split this into two issues - the second is actually easier to fix and the first is
more easily worked around right now.

Both should be able to be worked around by adding a parent in the root that is just used for
checkouts, and building as a non-recursive project.

> Adding the parent pom to continuum I had all the projects created and they build successfully

(The system cannot find the path specified)
> Is there something wrong I do or is this a Continuum problem?
> Note that: when we used to have parent pom one level above sub-modules pom, release worked
fine. But that kind of structure is not friendly to our development tools so we need to use
a flat one.
