Subject Re: Proposed new multiproject build
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2004 13:26:27 GMT
It worked for me... but..

A bit off topic, as my problems don't have anything to do with Dain's 
changes, but I have some questions on the build processing.

I tried the following (without cleaning my repository but with an empty 
geronimo directory):

        maven m:co
        maven m:build

I then got impatient because it was attempting to download artifacts from 
ibiblio over and over and also started running tests, so I cancelled the 
build and tried:

        maven m:build -o

This then failed because I didn't have the correct version of the jetty 
jar in my repository.

So I then tried 

        maven m:build -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Dmaven.itest.skip=true

and the build was getting plenty of timeout or connection reset errors 
(something between ibiblio and myself having problems, as the ibiblio 
website was timing out often also):

        Attempting to download openejb-core-2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar.
        Error retrieving artifact from []: Connection timed out: connect

and the build finally completed in the lightening fast time of:

        Total time: 54 minutes 35 seconds
        Finished at: Thu Oct 07 22:02:19 EST 2004

A few questions...

If I want to do a build of Geronimo and related projects (ActiveMQ, 
OpenEJB, TranQL) the first two steps sound right to me:
        maven m:co
        maven m:build

But when I build Geronimo  (using maven m:build) I think I only want it to 
attempt to download dependencies (e.g. jetty, tomcat, xerces) from the 
maven central repository (ibiblio) and not keep attempting to download JAR 
files for geronimo (the code I am building) such as 

Is there some chicken and egg situation as to why the code needs to 
download the geronimo SNAPSHOT jars when building geronimo?  If not, is 
there a way we can prevent the build from downloading the geronimo 
SNAPSHOT jars, but download the other dependencies such as jetty? 

If we have a situation where the build is broken, is there an easy way to 
build Geronimo using all the versions of the files (svn and CVS) of the 
last successful nightly build?  Am I dreaming :-) ?
