Subject RE: How to remove a hanging build process
Date Mon, 15 Jan 2007 09:46:43 GMT

Sometimes continuum seems to have problems with a particular build, but
never fails and therefore never restarts.

Since continuum 1.0.3 has no concept of stopping a build, only deletion
of a project, the only way to force a build to restart is to delete it
from continuum's internal database.

Currently we have continuum configured to run using the embedded derby
database with "sa" user. This database only allows one connection at a
time, so you need to stop the continuum server before you can connect
with an SQL client.

Ensure the continuum server is stopped if you want to attempt to run the
SQL client below

We have also installed SquirrelSQL as SQL Client which should connect to
the derby database. 

Fire up squirrel via the squirrel-sql.bat file you should connect to the
continuum database.

Go to the "sa" user node and drill into TABLE -> BUILDRESULT

click the sql tab and delete from BUILDRESULT and execute

That will clear up your hanging builds and other results too.

If you want to remove a particular project build you can select the
project id and use it in the "where" clause.

Then disconnect from derby and exit squirrel client.

Re-start continuum.

Thank you for your response.  I finally got rid of it by re-configuring
Continuum to use different work and build folder.  After restarting
Continuum it started at some point to get unstuck with those problematic
build tasks.

I am also looking forward to the next release.

I have the same thing happening. The best I can tell you is to click on
build all and then kill all processes. That should return the system to
a state you can build from, however you will never get rid of the failed
build and it will continue to show it as running for the rest of this
versions life. You simply have to ignore it and move on. I was told that
this bug should be fixed in the next release which we are eagerly

By build task you mean the java task that shows up in a ps -ef? Cant you
just kill the task using the kill <pid> command?
