Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2002) improve build/tests
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2011 14:23:05 GMT


Robert Muir commented on SOLR-2002:

Hi Chris, so mainly i want to start with the patch where Solr's build system extends Lucene's.

This gives us a 'single' build system (as the modules and lucene contrib already extend lucene's)
rather than the 4 or 5 we have now: as solr contribs actually basically have their own standalone

So in lucene's common-build, we can easily add new targets/checks/functionality (e.g. findbugs/failing
on javadocs/etc) and it applies to everything.

Also in my tests this was a huge speedup to the solr build, especially things like ant test

But, there is a lot to do: in my patch i only did the basics (compile/test/etc).
* we need to implement things like solr 'example' tasks.
* we need to look at lucene and solr's build.xml and see what things are duplicates, such
as packaging tasks, that can be added to common-build.xml: an example is artifact signing
and hashing.
* i think it might be worth our time to look at antunit or something of that nature to implement
'tests' for the build system. By this i don't really mean tests that ensure our ant logic
is correct: I mean automated tests that look at whether things like packaging are correct.
But i havent looked at antunit yet, so I admittedly don't know what I am talking about.
* once everything is using a single common-build recursively, we should consider additional
features (pmd, findbugs, ...) that we would want to implement to perform even more checks:
this can really be separate issues but its good to think right now about how we can make our
build system as picky as possible to try to keep the codebase in good shape.

> we are working on improving some functionality in lucene's build/tests, it would be good
to improve the solr side to take advantage of it.
> currently its only sorta-kinda integrated and a bit messy.
> i'd like to do some incremental improvements piece-by-piece on this issue.
