Continuous Integration Project for NexJ Express Code
- 1 Project goal
- 2 Current Status
- 3 Project Phases
- 4 Challenges
- 5 Resources
Currently, NexJ has a Mercurial Repository (Internal) in which, the NexJ Express Server (Core) code is maintained with all its histories. NexJ is planning to share a Core Repository with the Open Source Community by creating a Repository (External) that will be kept in sync with the Internal Repository.
Phase 1: Design Proposal (Done)
- Get requirements from NexJ
- Incorporate requirements from NexJ into Design of algorithm for syncing repositories
- Provide the proposal for review and approved - final version of proposal , Google Doc
Phase 2: Creating Similar Environment (Done)
- Internal Repository
- Creating a Mercurial repository and adding some changes to it to grow the history of it.
- This will be containing temporary repositories as the result of scripting.
- External Repository
- Creating another Mercurial repository using 'hg' commands from the latest 'change-set' of Internal Repository.
Phase 3: Scripting (Done)
- Doesn't support some of non-regular Mercurial commands that we need to play with change-sets
- Supports everything we need for the project. script
Phase 4: Running the script on CI system (Done)
- Simple to setup and configure.
- Runs different types of scripts: bash, ant, batch
- Can be scheduled to run automatically or manually
- Test Project
Phase 5: Code Review (Done)
- Execute the script on one of Nexj computers.
Phase 6: Make Changes as per Code Review (Done)
- Define paths based on Nexj's requirements
- Modify the script to be able to retrieve change-sets of a remote repository
- Create specific error message for each problem during running the script
Phase 7: Code Review (Done)
- Send code for review.
- NexJ Express Repository in use
