Subject [jira] [Created] (CONTINUUM-2767) Agent builds duplicate last change in prior result as first in subsequent result
Date Wed, 13 May 2015 00:58:59 GMT
Brent N Atkinson created CONTINUUM-2767:

             Summary: Agent builds duplicate last change in prior result as first in subsequent
                 Key: CONTINUUM-2767
             Project: Continuum
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4.2
            Reporter: Brent N Atkinson
            Assignee: Brent N Atkinson
             Fix For: 1.5.0

There is an inconsistency with the way SCM changes are computed for master-only builds and
master-agent builds. Master-only builds include the changelog for all changes since the start
of the prior build. Master-agent builds include the changelog since the lastChangedDate of
the prior build. This results in inconsistent changes between the two modes, with agent builds
duplicating changes between builds.

In the short-term, the methods should at least be made consistent with each other. However,
it is worth noting that neither of these is strictly correct. Because the method uses the
time to compute the changes, differences in time between master and agent will have a noticeable
effect on the changeset. Also, changes can be duplicated or omitted based on overlapping or
gaps in the times between builds. It would be better to use revision ranges to do this, but
this will likely require changes to the scm subsystem to support.

To reproduce the problem, simply create a sample project and a script that commits changes
with a unique message (I used a sequential number to make it easy to identify overlap). Shorten
the schedule so that you can get quick builds and compare the prior and subsequent result
pairs. You should see that the last change in the prior build is also included as the first
change in the subsequent result.
