I tried correcting the points mentioned but found other problems. Again, if you could help me with them it’d be a great help:
1- The first point I made was mainly about keeping the workspace for the downloaded maven dependencies which can be a pain to download every single time.(which, if I understood correctly will be the case if the workspace is deleted every single time)
Denis said it all :)
2- I tried to add a promote step to the job but I cannot figure out how one would access the archive files from the job as the promote step is launched in another agent. I gather you can get them through a (curl ?) request but that can be a big overhead for larger project archives (e.g. RCPs, zipped p2s containing hundreds of plugins, …). There must be a way to do it cleanly but I didn’t find how.
promote step/plugins is from another time where workspaces were expected to stay available for some time. I'd suggest you get rid of it and find another workflow
3- I tried to publish the contents in the same workspace state (after the build) but the ssh connection did not seem to get through (no error shown just a timeout). Is the destination still /home/data/httpd/download.eclipse.org or should I call another destination ? As a bonus question it should be possible to use variables in the request but if I transform “ssh genie.shared@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx mkdir –p /home/data/***” into “ssh $sshGenie@$sshRemote mkdir -p $destinationUpdateSite” it times out. Is it because the previously mentioned destination is erroneous ?
genie.shared does not have access to projects-storage. It should be genie.xwt if you're doing some work on the XWT instance.
Ps : The zip command seem to only be available in the ‘migration’ profile. Should I open a bug for it to be integrated inside the “ui-test” (as I get the feeling that migration is not supposed to last) along the one for Gerrit problems ?
Yes, please. Feel free to do it.
Pps: to provide further information I included the script I intended to use as a promotion script. If you see any kind of problems with it feel free to tell me J
