Subject Re: Project build order for multiple Maven 2 projects - Alphabetical by Project Name?
Date Mon, 21 May 2007 10:17:46 GMT
Continuum build all maven projects in the order oof the dependencies tree AND if dependencies
between projects are circular, Continuum build projects in alphabetical order.
Continuum 1.0.3 build only dependecy that have some changes in SCM but not on dependency changes.

You can try Continuum 1.1, if a new build of a module is done by continuum, Continuum will
build dependent projects even if they don't have SCM changes.
