Nightly Build

There are two main scripts responsible for the nightly build process which are <SUMO_HOME>/tools/build_config/ (for the linux part) and <SUMO_HOME>/tools/build_config/ for Windows. Essentially they both perform the following steps:

  1. git pull
  2. do a clean build (release and debug version)
  3. run unittests (currently linux only)
  4. build and upload packages
  5. build and upload documentation (linux only)
  6. run the acceptance tests (texttest)
  7. upload test results

All the results can be found in the daily dir on the sumo web space, also see Downloads#Nightly_Snapshots. Coverage information based on running the nightly tests is generated as well. The status can be found at the sumo web space.

There is also a local copy in the Sumo/daily directory (including the most recent game scenarios) the DLR internal tsall NAS. The windows script uses the sumo-all package from the local dir to build the binary distributable zip and the game zip.

One final step is to trigger the nightly build on the opensuse build service. This is achieved via uploading a new spec file via a cronjob, which triggers an automatic download of the sources and a rebuild. All errors and test result e-mails are directed to the sumo-tests list at, except for the build service errors which go to a private account since the build is currently in a private project.

Continuous integration#

There are continuous integration builds on GitHub and on AppVeyor. Both are configured such that they cancel a running build when a new commit occurs, so we do not have build results for all commits (but we avoid a large backlog this way).

To get build logs click on the marker beside the commit message (red cross, yellow circle or green tick) and choose details for the build in question.

The AppVeyor build also provides the binaries as download (currently for about six months after the commit). To download choose details using the marker (as above) for the commit from and then choose the Visual Studio version in question (when in doubt use the latest version) and click on artifacts where a should be available.

Platforms and tests#

  • "sumo" refers to the vanilla Eclipse SUMO version without optional libraries
  • "extra" means the variant with GDAL, OSG and FFMPEG running mesoscopic and python3 tests
  • the clang build has debugging code enabled via the configure option "--enable-debug"
  • all start times are local Berlin time
variant platform / compiler start time estimated duration
sumo Win32 msvc12 01:00 1h

Scenario tests#

  • "scenario" refers to the internal tests available at source:trunk/tests and includes the default and the daily tests
    • "weekly" are the weekly test suites of the internal tests available at source:trunk/tests
    • all scenario tests run with the "extra" variant of sumo
variant platform start time estimated duration
