Chesnay Schepler commented on FLINK-8819:
Yes. The "compile" stage also covers the various checks we have (rat,
checkstyle, spotbugs, ...). The test stages disable all of them...except
dependency-convergence (forgot about that one).
> Rework travis script to use build stages
> Key: FLINK-8819
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8819
> Project: Flink
> Issue Type: Sub-task
> Components: Build System, Travis
> Reporter: Chesnay Schepler
> Assignee: Chesnay Schepler
> Priority: Trivial
> This issue is for tracking efforts to rework our Travis scripts to use
> This feature allows us to define a sequence of jobs that are run one after
> another. This implies that we can define dependencies between jobs, in
> contrast to our existing jobs that have to be self-contained.
> As an example, we could have a compile stage, and a test stage with multiple
> The main benefit here is that we no longer have to compile modules multiple
> times, which would reduce our build times.
> The major issue here however is that there is no _proper_ support for passing
> build-artifacts from one stage to the next. According to this
> [issue|https://github.com/travis-ci/beta-features/issues/28] it is on their
> to-do-list however.
> In the mean-time we could manually transfer the artifacts between stages by
> either using the Travis cache or some other external storage. The cache
> solution would work by setting up a cached directory (just like the mvn
> cache) and creating build-scope directories within containing the artifacts
> (I have a prototype that works like this).
> The major concern here is that of cleaning up the cache/storage.
> We can clean things up if
> * our script fails
> * the last stage succeeds.
> We can *not* clean things up if
> * the build is canceled
> * travis fails the build due to a timeout or similar
> as apparently there is [no way to run a script at the end of a
> Thus we would either have to periodically clear the cache, or encode more
> information into the cached files that would allow _other_ builds to clean up
> stale date. (For example the build number or date).
