Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3753) Restructure the Lucene build system
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 15:57:59 GMT


Steven Rowe commented on LUCENE-3753:

bq. Can't say I object to the patch if it has a script to fix old patches


bq. will go back to 3x too

That's my plan, yes.

bq. and if it will speed up the build system? (Note: I didn't dig into LUCENE-3754, but its
my impression that it would?)

I don't know.  I figured it would be about the same speed, but I'll check to be sure.  (I
think {{ant build-contrib}} in {{lucene/}} is the right thing to use for this.)  LUCENE-3754
will speed up the Solr build, since it depends on lucene-core jar, but a lot (all?) of the
Lucene build depends on un-jarred build outputs, and so won't be affected, AFAIK.

bq. can 'ant test-core' be an alias for 'test' inside lucene/core? And same with javadocs-core?
It might work already in the patch (I didnt test), but I noticed this trips me up for solr
as well... just used to typing it i guess.

I'll add them if they don't already work (not sure).

bq. can we give a heads up to the list first? i know i have a bunch of old checkouts where
if i ran 'svn up' i'd have to deal with a hellacious merge conflict, but dumping out to a
patch, upgrading that patch with the tool,
and then applying that to a new checkout with patch --merge would probably be easier (I'd
only have to deal with the "real" conflicts then)

Yes, I agree a heads-up to the dev list first would be good - I was planning on giving 24
hours notice before committing.

> Split out separate core/, test-framework/, and tools/ modules, each with its own build.xml,
under the lucene/ directory, similar to the Solr restructuring done in SOLR-2452.
