Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2229) Update the status icon of the project when it is added in build-prepare-queue
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 20:34:44 GMT


Wendy Smoak commented on CONTINUUM-2229:

I think this is a step in the right direction.

If the 'in queue' icon is displayed, then I expect to see the project listed on the 'Queues'
page.  (I also expect to be able to cancel it.)

Those can be separate issues, I just wanted to raise the concern here as I don't think this
is a complete fix for the "I clicked build but nothing is happening!" user perception problem.

> When it is forced build, the status icon of the project doesn't change if there are other
projects waiting to be processed in build-prepare-queue. Users get confused that nothing happened
especially if the project that precedes it is very big (hence taking too long to finish).
We can change the status icon of the project to "in queue" as an indicator that it is already
inserted in build-prepare-queue.
> To reproduce:
> 1. add a small project
> 2. add a  big project
> 3. build the big project and then immediately build the small project.
> notice the status icons of the small project, it will only be updated once the big project
has finished processing in the build-prepare stage.
