Build Depency

I have a build for compile and 4 builds for test (each platform has its own test)

i want to create a scenario which one agent compiles and as soon as its done the tests will be distributed among agent

currently i can't do that because there is no build depency

is there a plan to add such feature anytime soon ? (or maybe you got anotheri idea for me)

This is exactly what I would need in our project scenario as well.

Well since you can't do tests without builds you just set up your four
test builds to build first. It will take the same time to do 4 builds as
it will to do one build since you're doing them on four different
agents. The only downside is that you will get 4 notifications on build
failure.

At least, this is how I have the same setup configured on our project.

doing 4 builds on the same sources doesn't seem like the right way for me
it can messes up everything

How can it mess things up if you have four separate agents? Are you
writing the build results to a shared network location? You could just
compile to a local drive and then your builds are completely isolated
from each other.

yes, we are working with clearcase view mapped to a network drive
every agent has that drive mapped and is working on it

We also plan to make it possible to retrieve artifacts of one build configuration
while building another one.
