I hope you don't mind I'm using this group as a sounding board. I'm posting my thoughts in part to help solidify them in my head and then also to see if anyone out there has any interesting observations or experience that can help. Smile | :)


I have been thinking about what I and my customers would like to get from this tool and have come up with a great many pieces of information that I could/should track. But I'm thinking that I just need to find the core pieces of information and then use queries against the information store to figure out the rest. For example, some of the things I'd like to be able to do are:

1. Determine build order of files/projects
2. Determine which projects can be built simultaneously
3. See all the dependancies of file X/project Y
4. See all the dependancies on file X/project Y
5. Find duplicate files
6. Which projects create which files and then which other project then consume those files.

I have some ideas on what to track I just need to implement it and see how it works. The more I think about this issue I think the harder part will be to actually collect this information. Ideally I'd be collecting this information while multiple instances of the compilation tools are executing at once. I'm having some fun wrapping my head around having a single process monitoring multiple processes and maintaining the build ordering/hiereachy inside and outside of a project. I'm wondering if it would be best to do this in two passes.

Then there's the question of what's the best design for processing all of those file open/creation transactions. My current thought is to have one thread per compilation process. I only expect to have 4-8 processes going at once, so that doesn't seem like it should be to resource intesive.

And just so you know this is the biggest project I've ever tackled, so I'm a bit nervous about getting my approach organized before I start and then making sure I'm starting in the correct place.

Thanxx for your input,

Adam
