Hello, let's assume I have three .NET projects to build. Each of them produce DLLs that the next depend on to build.
So the build order has to be 1,2,3 obviously. I cannot seem to find any information on how to work with dependencies and Bamboo. If I build project 1, how can the output (DLLs) of that build be used in the build of project 2 and how would they actually be referenced (assuming everything is on BitBucket)?
We are currently using CruiseControl locally and this is straight forward since it's basically like building it on your own machine locally. It builds the projects in order, places the output in defined output directories which then the following projects uses for the dependencies.
Unfortunately you can't share artefacts between plans, which a lot of customers would like to do. You would need to have those builds in one plan, with each build being in its own stage making three stages to your plan.
In each build you can then share the artefact and set the path to the expected location of the artefact to with with respect to the build working directory. So you would create an artefact definition in stage 1's job, share it, then in stage 2's job make that an artefact dependency and toss it into the directory where your consuming build expects it.
If you don't want one singular plan with 3 stages and their associated jobs, you could have three plans with plan 1 being the parent of plan 2 and plan 2 being the parent of plan 3. However, you would then need to ship your artefacts to a network/shared drive or deploy the artefact with a dependency management tool like maven from plan 1 then depend on it from plan 2.
Over the next several weeks we'll be sharing some of our Getting Started guides here in the community. Throughout this series of posts, we'd love to hear from customers and non-customers ab...
