Add Build Activities


Jirong Hu (1.5k8273256) | asked Mar 26 '12, 4:52 p.m.
Hi

In my custom application build.xml, if I want to show an entry in Build Activity tab of the build result, I have to add an entry in my build.xml.

1. Is there an easier way?
2. What's the real benefit of add these entries?

<startBuildActivity>

Thanks
Jirong

If you want to show progress or data, you need to use the Ant tasks. They are the means to communicate back to the JBE. One advantage is to be able to see progress in your build result versus having no clue what is happening. This helps in cases the build fails as well.
