Sample Feeds

Support For Eclipse.org Jar Signing

So that we can identify which projects' builds are signed, the <build/> node can take an attribute for jars, thus:

<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
  ...
  <summary>
    <build 
      xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/2006/BuildFeed" 
      callisto="COMPLETE" 
      href="http://download.eclipse.org/downloads/drops/S-3.2RC5-200605191206" 
      jars="UNSIGNED" 
      type="S">
    ...
  </summary>
</feed>

I'm thinking of 5 status codes, assuming the current jar signing process continues as proposed:

  • NONE (or "") - no status available or not participating
  • UNSIGNED - no jar signage available or done yet
  • SIGNREADY - jars promoted to eclipse.org, ready for signing
  • BUILDREADY - signed on eclipse.org, ready to be collected and bundled as zips and copied to UM site
  • SIGNED - signed & bundled on download page and on UM site

Support For Build Type

So that we can identify what type of build a given entry is, these values can be specified for a type attribute:

<build 
  xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/2006/BuildFeed" 
  callisto="COMPLETE" 
  href="http://download.eclipse.org/downloads/drops/S-3.2RC5-200605191206" 
  jars="UNSIGNED"
  type="S">
  • N : Nightly
  • I : Integration
  • M : Maintenance
  • S : Stable (Milestone or Release Candidate)
  • R : Release
  • MC : Maintenance-Callisto
  • SC : Stable-Callisto
  • RC : Release-Callisto

If the property buildType is not specified, the ant task will attempt to guess the build type based on the buildID, like this:

 public void setBuildType(String buildType) 
 {
   if (!isNullString(buildType)) 
   {
     this.buildType = buildType;
   }
   else
   {
     this.buildType = buildID.replaceAll("[^NIMSR]", NS); //$NON-NLS-1$
     if (this.buildType.length()>1) 
     {
       this.buildType=this.buildType.substring(0, 1);
     }
   }
 }

Support For Callisto Status

So that we can identify which projects' have been posted to Callisto, there's an attribute on the <build/> node, thus:

<build 
  xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/2006/BuildFeed" 
  callisto="COMPLETE" 
  href="http://download.eclipse.org/downloads/drops/S-3.2RC5-200605191206" 
  jars="UNSIGNED"
  type="S">

Status codes here could be:

Code Purpose/Description
NONE (or "") not part of Callisto or unknown status
BUILDCOMPLETE Have you finished your RC1 bits?
2006-05-02T20:50:00Z When do you expect to finish them?
TPTP If you're waiting for another project, which one(s)?
UMSITEREADY Have you placed those bits in your update site?
CALLISTOSITEREADY Have you updated the features.xml file in the Callisto CVS directory?
COMPLETE Are you ready for RC1 to be declared?

Latest Code

The latest code can be found in CVS, currently in the releng_test branch:


The latest XML Schema is here:


Additionally, zips are available here (but are NOT as recent as what's in CVS):

  • Shell & Ant tasks to create, update, query & publish feeds (CVS, SCP)
  • Shell & Ant tasks to respond to feed changes (eg., sending an email, firing another ant task, launching a shell process with <exec>)
  • Ant task (and shell wrapper) to validate a feed against the latest schema
