Understanding application and build statuses

Builds automatically begin when Codewind detects changes or when you initiate a build by clicking the Build button on a project.

Application status

The application status shows the current state of your application.

  • Starting the application
    • When you start Codewind, it starts all the applications unless you have disabled them.
    • To enable a project that has been disabled, visit the Project Overview page by using the context menu in the Codewind view and click the Enable project button to build containers and start the application.
  • Stopping an application
    • When you stop Codewind, its applications also stop.
    • To disable a project, navigate to the Project Overview page and click the Disable project button to stop the application and containers to save system resources.

Build status

The build status shows the current stage of your application in the build lifecycle.

  • Note: Appsody projects do not display build status.
  • When you create or import your application, the state is Unknown.
  • The project is then subsequently put in a build queue. When a project is in the build queue, its build state is Queued. The default maximum number of builds that can be run concurrently is three.
  • If your build fails, inspect the build logs. Open the build logs from the project’s context menu. In the build logs, you can view error messages that describe the type and cause of failure.
