Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2218) Unrelated but inter-dependent projects in the same group are not built in the correct order
Date Wed, 06 May 2009 09:18:45 GMT


Wendy Smoak commented on CONTINUUM-2218:

I think [1] is fine... most of the time, a project group contains a single multi-module project
hierarchy anyway, and it's vitally important that things get built in the right order within
a group.

If you were going to do [2], it should notice that the ear depends on both wars and build
them all in one queue.  That the wars can be build independently is not relevant since they
*must* both be built before the ear.  Not everyone uses SNAPSHOT version numbers so that shouldn't
be a consideration.  Maybe we can leave this optimization open for a future enhancement. :)

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.3.2
>            Reporter: Wendy Smoak
>            Assignee: Maria Catherine Tan
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 1.3.3
> To reproduce, add three unrelated projects to a project group where one project depends
on the other two, such as an EAR that depends on two WARs.  They can use a master pom as <parent>
but should not be part of a parent-with-modules hierarchy.  
> The expected behavior is for Continuum to build the WARs first and then the EAR, however
this is not what happens in my example.  The EAR is built first, causing it to have the wrong/old
WARs inside and wasting time spent testing the wrong artifacts.
> This happens whether or not multiple parallel build queues are used.  With multiple queues,
Continuum scatters the projects among queues and the build order depends on what finishes
first.  When restricted to a single queue, you can see the incorrect order as it moves through
the queue.
> Continuum should consider dependencies when ordering projects within a group, even if
the projects are not part of a multi-module hierarchy.
> [Unconfirmed regression in 1.3.x.  I believe this worked correctly in 1.2.x  as we're
getting new problem reports after upgrading, but haven't had time to verify.]
