[Buildbot-devel] Using an output .exe from one builder for another

Ah yes, that's what I'm looking for. I'll give that a go.

Another issue I'm running into is that the BuilderB does a SVN checkout on a different repository than BuilderA (it updates test data, no code). Since the sourceStamp is passed on from BuilderA to BuilderB, the SVN checkout step fails because it's looking for rXXX which doesn't exist in our data repository.

Is there any way to get the triggered build to ignore the sourceStamp? I've looked at updateSourceStamp but that doesn't seem to do what I'm talking about...

Depending on how big the built executable is, you might be able to use FileUpload and FileDownload steps to transfer it between slaves. Don't do that if the executable is significantly large, though.

Hi all,

I've got 3 buildslaves setup on different machines - they are all capable of doing builds, tests, etc.

One of my builders builds an .exe from C++ sources (BuilderA), and another builder runs batch unit tests (BuilderB). Problem is, BuilderB needs the output .exe from the other build step... so I've set it up so that the unit test builder can *ONLY* run on the same slave that runs the compilation .exe. i.e. as a first step, it copies the .exe from ../../BuilderA/build/<path to exe>. Then it runs the .exe from its own build directory. This seems to work (I'm using Triggers) but I think there's a better way of doing this?

Thoughts appreciated - thanks!
