Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1709) Parallelize Tests
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2009 01:25:07 GMT


Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-1709:

if you're looking to extend ant it might be better to tackle that on the dev@ant list ...
there's only two or three ant hackers i can think of in the lucene community (and a lot in
the ant community)

I would also suggest becoming familiar with these two links...

As mentioned in the "Previous discussion" link: a simple way for lucene to get *some* paralllelization
using existing ant functionality would be to extend (or make a variant) of our contrib-crawl
so it could run the contrib tests in parallel (contrib crawl can't be parallelized in the
general case because some contribs have dependencies on other contribs and build them if they
aren't already built)
