Tips on Using Apache BuildBot for OpenJPA Documentation Build

Get Help from Infrastructure team

  • Open an INFRA JIRA issue to request:

    • new requirements and set up for the build system
    • creating new build queue
  • Here's an example JIRA that was used to enable the 2.3.x doc builds.

    • note the Buildbot component and the openjpa label
    • also note that we as OpenJPA committers have commit karma for the openjpa.conf file required for this doc buildbot

Use IRC to communicate with openjpa-bot server

  • From a browser or an IRC application, join the #asftest channel in server irc://

    • /join #asftest
  • Direct message the openjpa-bot

    • /msg openjpa-bot status
    • If openjpa-bot member does not exist, then ask about it on the #asftest channel. They are very helpful.
  • On most irc clients this will open a direct dialog with the openjpa-bot member and you can use the commands outlined below
