Building java projects on runcoderun.com

26 01 2010

RunCodeRun is a hosted Continuous integration environment developed by Relevance. Thanks to the Relevance team and their effort to provide this service free for opensource projects.

I wanted to build rapa on RunCodeRun. I was trying to setup my project on RunCodeRun using instructions in a blog post. It is a very useful blog and easy to follow. But I was having trouble getting code to compile on runcoderun box. Here are the problems and their solutions.

I guess there is no real jdk on runcoderun, so my compile task on ant would not work.

I checked in tools.jar as a part of my project libraries. Then I added it as part of the classpath when invoking ant from rake.

classpath = [File.join(".","lib","ant.jar"), File.join(".","lib","tools.jar"), File.join(".","lib","junit.jar"), File.join(".","lib","ant-junit.jar"), File.join(".","lib","ant-launcher.jar")].join(File::PATH_SEPARATOR)
system "java -cp #{classpath} org.apache.tools.ant.Main -emacs dist"

Even after I fixed that the build would always go green even if there was failure from ant

I guess the exit status returned by rake was always zero irrespective of what ant returned. I changed the rakefile as shown below.

system "java -cp #{classpath} org.apache.tools.ant.Main -emacs dist"
exit $?.exitstatus

This seemed to fix all the issues with the build.

Along with these issues I was also facing an issue with ant-junit task with junit 4. Basically standard distribution of ant does not understand the annotations of junit4 and requires the test class to extend TestCase. I had to checkout the latest source from ant subversion trunk and build it. I am currently using these jars.

Have a look at the project in github.
