Subject Re: [jira] [Updated] (CELIX-90) add additional build options for RSA components
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2013 21:38:15 GMT
Hi all,

This patch looks good, it might be worthwhile to do the same for other
parts of the build (examples etc).

A drawback of the current solution (not introduced by this patch) is that
"deployments" don't have any dependencies. Adding dependencies to them (as
done in the patch) will result in configuration errors. This is because the
dependencies mechanism only works one way, ie, when cmake parses the files
it can silently enable projects if they aren't processed. Hence the
reversed order in the top level cmake file.

Since deployments can only be made after all the targets have been
processed, deployments can never silently enable dependencies.

At the moment this is "solved" by giving the subproject more dependencies,
eg not only dependencies required for compilation, but also the ones needed
for deployment. This is not the best solution, it is not obvious why those
dependencies are needed, and with this patch it becomes more obvious.

A workaround for this is to add a "fake/empty" subproject as part of the
top subproject (in the patch that would be the RSA_BUNDLES). This fake
subproject can then be used in the deploy file as check using

So for the RSA the following subprojects are created:


-- RSA_DEPLOY_EXAMPLE_BONJOUR // Only has deploy dependencies (it builds
-- RSA_DEPLOY_EXAMPLE_SLP // Only has deploy dependencies (it builds

-- RSA_TOPOLOGY_MANAGER // Only has build dependencies
-- RSA_RSA // Only has build dependencies
-- RSA_DISCOVERY_SLP // Only has build dependencies
-- RSA_DISCOVERY_BONJOUR // Only has build dependencies
-- RSA_EXAMPLE // Only has build dependencies

Do others have an opinion on this?
