Greetings, I've a project going that has multiple team members, supports multiple processor architectures and multiple languages. We're writing in Ruby (with test cases) and we interface to c and c++ using swig. Configuration management is done with subversion. Now with everyone working on the project and having all the platforms that need to be supported, I would like to install a continuous integration tool. The idea is to trigger the tool from svn commits, rebuild and run all the test cases in each of the environments. Cruise Control is clearly the most widely known tool. However, I'm building with rake and make (from the extconf generated with the swig stuff) neither of which appear to be supported (by default) by CC. I read somewhere that someone was working a CC equivalent in Ruby but have lost that information. So, what is the tool of choice for this group of folks to driver a continuous integration activities?

It's a small framework (four base classes and a couple of useful implementations) but by no means ready for public consumption. Currently I drive a rake/dmake/msbuild build with rdoc and doxygen generation so I guess I have enough variety :). The system is dRuby-based at the moment but the concept can be implemented with Rails or whatever else you like. I looked around for something that would handle the variety of build methods my project has and DamageControl looked the more promising, but I haven't seen any movement on that project since before RubyConf and the other alternatives (CC etc. ) were just too specialized. I guess with a bit of coding SwitchTower can be made into a continuous integration tool as well (is actually very easy) Cheers, V.- -- http://www.braveworld.net/riva

FWIW, I recently used CruiseControl for a C++/make project. I simply wrapped the make build in a basic ant script, using ant's ability to call external shell processes (this was on linux...). The same approach should work with tools like Rake. dean On 1/4/06, Damphyr <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > > So, what is the tool of choice for this group of folks to driver a > > continuous integration activities? > > ... -- Dean Wampler http://www.aspectprogramming.com http://www.newaspects.com http://www.contract4j.org

Damage Control is what you want. Unfortunately, I just googled to find a URL to give you and there doesn't appear to be any good information available. I'm copying Aslak and hopefully we'll have public information available soon. I know that he's been working very hard on it for several months now and I'm pretty sure there is a release forthcoming.
