To make the most out of bamboo's stagesand jobs I want to
a) split maven lifecycle phases across bamboo stages (Build -> Test -> Deploy)
b) split each stage into parallel jobs
I know how to split phases and stages:
BUILD: mvn clean install -DskipTests
TESTS: mvn surefire:test failsafe:test
DEPLOY: mvn clean deploy -DskipTests (rebuild - yick)
I don't know how to split across jobs. I'd like something that allowed me to run maven with multiple threads to determine which projects should be in each thread or job so I could construct the command line for each thread.
mvn do-thing -T4
Generates cmdline1.XML thru 4.XML
Jobs 1thru 4 invoke mvn using the XML to extract proper cmdline
Do you know of a plugin or cmdline option for this?
I think you're requesting impossible. Some limitations I can see:
mvn test -Pprofile_test_a, TESTB job to run
mvn test -Pprofile_test_b, etc
If you want to emulate some kind of dynamic job configuration you can emulate it using 2 script tasks. First of them would generate a script for another script task to run
I think you can also use surefire's/failsafe's allow you to run tests in multiple threads.
Bamboo cannot automatically do this, but I swear I saw a talk of the JIRA build team where they created an elastic build. I'll need to dig deeper on that. I created a feature request for now and will need to play around with running mvn validate -T4 to see if I can transform this into lists of "-pl group:artifact" statements which I could feed to identical jobs for execution.
