Subject Re: <?> Continuum, svn, ant - doc generation<?>
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2006 22:54:01 GMT
After looking at cruisecontrol and continuum, I found that I could get
several projects to checkout from the same repository url base on
cruise control, but be triggered by modifications in different
subdirectories.  Continuum with an ant target didn't seem to allow
this (or I just couldn't figure it out).  With CruiseControl this
allows me to have target/project based granularity.  If I could use
maven, I'm sure I'd have the integration I'd like.  However, for me to
use maven for a 100% non java solution just seems like the wrong path.

So, I think for my specific application, CruiseControl makes more
sense (although continuum and its XML-RPC interface remains pretty
damn attractive).

Thanks for the consideration of the problem.
