Subject Re: ActiveMQ build takes 3 to 6 hours on Jenkins
Date Sat, 30 Mar 2013 06:23:38 GMT
I had the same impression, build servers seem to be a grey area. I guess so
far they run pretty "self managed".
However the number of projects grow constantly and continuous builds are a
central part in every project.

Those concrete builds seem to run 3 and 6 hours really, not because they
are queud, its the job itself. Errors in Jenkins so far had the effect that
the build just immediately stopped as failed.
But its not clear if that is an accident or a desired behaviour for those
concrete builds. The only ones that can really answer that are the devs @
