Parsing Maven Logs from Multiple Bamboo Steps

Hi all,

Please let me know what you think is the right way to parse maven logs.

I broke my build into three steps: core, clientUI, installer. Each is a multi project maven build. I use "Script" tasks and a script file with targets to handle each step so I ensure the how-to-build is captured in source control. I setup clientUI and Installer to always run so I'll always get an installer even if the clientUI tests fail that one step

now, I have bamboo logs which are difficult to read. I plan to add a parsing step that captures the bamboo log analyze it and write a summary. Were I using ant, I'd set ant to use XML output, slurp it into a structure, extract my data and write a summary. Since I'm using maven, I'm looking at writing a plain text parser for maven.

The effort involved is non trivial and I'm wondering if I'm making this harder than it needs to be.

Do any of ypu run multi-step maven builds in bamboo plans and how to handle extracting the relevant bits out of the inner build steps?

Thanks

Peter

In Java-world, what you could do is to inherit from the class com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.maven.task.Maven2BuildTask (or Maven3BuildTask). Some options then:

add some marker to the log file that would let you find out where the task starts

redirect the Maven logs to a separate file by using buildLogger.getInterceptorStack().add() method.

have the interceptor generate the summary on the fly - that's what it's for ;-)

I'm confused are you saying that I'd create my own plugin or is that can I execute groovy or java steps in my plan configuration?
