JMeter releases are now published using svnpubsub.
For release votes, the files are uploaded to the dev/jmeter tree at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/
If the vote succeeds, they are renamed to the release directory at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/jmeter/ which is automatically published to the ASF mirror system.

{{{
ant RC_upload -DRC=RCn -DrepoType=live [-Dasf.ldap.password=secret [-Dasf.ldap.usermame=user] ]
}}}

The files should now be available under https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/
Line 153: Line 168:
 * Login to people.apache.org in SSH
 * Create temporary location to receive dist files
{{{

 * Preparation RC publishing
{{{

}}}
 * copy archives, sigs and hashes to dist
{{{
cp ~/jmeter_v2_8_RC1/dist/* ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/dist/
}}}

 * check hashes (before / after uploads)

== MD5 checks (local) ==
Example, on local Linux box:
{{{
cd /release_dir/dist
find . -name "*.md5" -exec cat {} \; -exec echo "" \;
}}}
Results (copy/paste to email vote):
{{{

}}}
== After upload on people.apache.org ==
Check MD5 sums on people.apache.org, with bash shell, check the md5 files sum vs files .md5 hashes.
{{{
cd ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/dist/
}}}
Copy/paste all lines in one time
{{{

do
      if test `awk '{ print $1 }' ${ARCHIVE}.md5` = `md5 -q ${ARCHIVE}`; then
          echo MD5 OK;
      else
          echo MD5 checksum KO;
      fi;
done
}}}
Good results are:
{{{
MD5 OK
MD5 OK
MD5 OK
MD5 OK
}}}

This is done using svnmnucc.
It moves the files from the staging director https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/ to the live are at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/jmeter/

  * Example:
{{{
svn switch http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/branches/docs-2.8/docs
}}}
  * If the documentation needs to be updated between releases, create a branch docs-vm_n_o from the tag and switch to that
  * for later updates, use "svn switch" or "svn update" as appropriate (use svn info to find current setting)
  * The Javadocs are not in SVN so these need to be copied from the staging area
     * Example:
{{{
cd /www/jmeter.apache.org/
rm -r /www/jmeter.apache.org/api
cd ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/docs
cp -R api /www/jmeter.apache.org
chmod -R g+w /www/jmeter.apache.org/api
}}}
 * N.B. wait for few hours so site updates catch up
This is now done using svnmucc. Create a script - for example "updatesite.txt" - containing the following:

{{{
rm
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/site

cp
HEAD
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/branches/docs-2.8/docs
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/site
}}}

Change the /docs-2.8/ path segment above as appropriate!

Now use svnmucc to update the live site:
{{{
svnmucc -m "Create branch docs 2.8" -X updatesite.txt
}}}

The SvnPubSub system will update the live site within a few seconds.

This page is a brain dump of the various items needed for a release.

  • DRAFT

Requirements

  • a Java JDK in according with target JDK (Java 5 for JMeter 2.8)
  • a recent Ant binary (1.8+)
  • subversion (svn) client installed; the command-line utility svnmucc is needed (it should be included in the svn client installation, but please check)
  • a text editor
  • hostname must resolve to ip address (not loopback)
  • Internet access

Preparation

  • request Bugzilla version update (on INFRA or if you are JMeter committer, ask for sufficient Bugzilla karma to do this yourself)

  • ensure changes.xml is up to date. If necessary, commit after update.
  • ensure unit tests pass
  • do not update the version in build.xml yet; trunk should remain a SNAPSHOT
  • check out SVN trunk into a clean workspace, for example (assuming current trunk is 2.8-SNAPSHOT in preparation for releasing 2.8):

svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/trunk jmeter_v2_8_RC1
  • Move to the new workspace:

cd jmeter_v2_8_RC1
  • update the version / year in the new workspace: JMeterVersion.java (version and year) and NOTICE (year)
    • ./src/core/org/apache/jmeter/util/JMeterVersion.java:
      • section: private static final String VERSION = "2.8";

      • section: private static final String COPYRIGHT = "Copyright (c) 1998-2012 The Apache Software Foundation";

    • ./NOTICE:
      • section: Copyright 1998-2012 The Apache Software Foundation

  • update xdocs/download_jmeter.xml to the new version
    • section: <!ENTITY release '2.8'>

  • Download external jars

ant download_jars 
  • build site documents, having first cleaned out existing files (so obsolete files will be removed):
    • TODO should this be done on trunk, before creating the clean checkout? Are there any references to the current version in the docs?

ant clean-docs
ant docs-site
ant docs-api -Djmeter.version=2.8
  • commit docs changes

svn commit -m "Prepare next release 2.8: update docs tree and overview (RC1)"
  • make a last SVN update to update revision number for your workspace

svn update
  • edit now the version for build.xml (remove -SNAPSHOT)

    • ./build.xml:
      • section: <property name="jmeter.version" value="2.8"/>

  • create the new RC tag, e.g. v2_8_RC1 from the workspace

svn copy -m "Tag for pre-release" . https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8_RC1
  • this will create the tag from the contents of the workspace. Only the updated files will be shown in the commit message; most files will be shown as being copied from trunk.
    • N.B. Tags must be immutable, i.e. must not be changed once created. A tag can be deleted if it is no longer needed, but must not be recreated.
      • If there is a problem with the contents of an RC tag, create a new tag, for example v2_8_RC2
      • If the tag is part of an ongoing release vote, do not delete it whilst the vote is ongoing, even if the vote is now using a later tag. It can be useful to be able to compare the contents of tags as part of the voting process.
      • Once the release vote is over, intermediate tags are no longer needed, and can be deleted.
      • If the tag has not been used in a release vote, it can be deleted immediately.
  • Switch to the new tag

svn switch https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8_RC1
  • build code to make a testing binary with this ant task:

ant -Djmeter.version=2.8 -Duser.name=milamber@apache.org distribution
  • test the new binaries (move/extract binaries in a temporary directory outside the workspace)
    • GUI and non-GUI using host with graphic capability
    • non-GUI only using host with no graphic capability
    • ideally test on minimum supported Java and latest Java - especially for GUI

Generate Release

  • If tests are ok, from the workspace jmeter_v2_8_RC1
    • (no need to fetch the tag again, as we already have a clean workspace)
  • sign distribution files and maven files via ant tasks:

ant _dist_maven -Djmeter.version=2.8
ant sign_dist -Dgpg.keyname=0612B399 -Dgpg.secretKeyring=~/.gnupg/secring.gpg
  • Upload Maven files to Maven repository:

ant maven_upload -Djmeter.version=2.8 -DrepoType=releases
  • Go to Apache Repository

    • Section Staging Repositories

    • You will receive a email with JMeter Maven Repo URLs
      • The main URL must be added to email vote.
  • Generate RAT report (example on Linux with Java)

cd dist/
java -jar $RAT_HOME/apache-rat-0.8.jar ./apache-jmeter-2.8.tgz > rat-report-jmeter-2.8RC1.txt
unix2dos rat-report-jmeter-2.8RC1.txt

Checks to do before sending vote email

  • review RAT report
  • to do: add some checks (zip/tgz binary files vs src files, SVN tree vs SRC files, etc.)

Check: JMeter SVN tree vs JMeter archive sources

TODO: simplify this checking process and extend to Windows.

For JMeter sources, need a Linux box, SVN (apache) and GIT (local).

Export the RC tags to a temporay directory.

cd /tmp
svn export http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8_RC1 jmeter_v2_8_RC1

Initialize a GIT local repository

cd jmeter_v2_8_RC1/
git init

Add and commit all files from the svn export

git add *
git commit -m "SVN export to initial import"

Untar the JMeter sources tgz file into a temporary directory, and copy the contents in the git repo.

tar xfz /tmp/releases/jmeter_2_8/jmeter_v2_8_RC1/dist/apache-jmeter-2.8_src.tgz -C /tmp
cp -a /tmp/apache-jmeter-2.8/* /tmp/jmeter_v2_8_RC1/

Check the differences with the git diff command:

cd /tmp/jmeter_v2_8_RC1/
git diff

Samples Results:

diff --git a/bin/jmeter b/bin/jmeter
old mode 100755
new mode 100644
diff --git a/bin/jmeter-server b/bin/jmeter-server
old mode 100755
new mode 100644
diff --git a/xdocs/download_jmeter.cgi b/xdocs/download_jmeter.cgi
old mode 100755
new mode 100644

Here, differences is only the permission on some files (not matter in this case)

After all checks, you can remove the temporary directories.

Upload release artifacts to staging directory

JMeter releases are now published using svnpubsub. For release votes, the files are uploaded to the dev/jmeter tree at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/ If the vote succeeds, they are renamed to the release directory at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/jmeter/ which is automatically published to the ASF mirror system.

ant RC_upload -DRC=RCn -DrepoType=live [-Dasf.ldap.password=secret [-Dasf.ldap.usermame=user] ]

The files should now be available under https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/

Vote on release

  • ** This section is outdated ***
  • Install the site docs:

cd ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/
svn export https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8_RC1/docs docs
  • Extract Javadocs: unzip -x jmeter-m.n.o.zip '*/docs/api/*' and move to docs/api

    • Example:

cd $HOME
cp  ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/dist/apache-jmeter-2.8.tgz $HOME
tar xfz apache-jmeter-2.8.tgz
cd apache-jmeter-2.8/docs/
mv api ~/public_html/jmeter-2.8RC1/docs/api
cd $HOME
rm -r $HOME/apache-jmeter-2.8
  • send round [VOTE] e-mail to dev
  • Wait for any feedback (at least 72 hours); address any issues raised, if necessary by creating another release tag
  • If at least 3 PMC votes, then continue

After VOTE success

  • send round [VOTE] [RESULT] e-mail to same mailing lists
  • Copy the RC tag to the release tag

svn copy https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8_RC1 https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/tags/v2_8 -m "Vote succeeded, create the 2.8 tag"

Move RC dist files to release

This is done using svnmnucc. It moves the files from the staging director https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/jmeter/ to the live are at https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/jmeter/

ant RC_publish -DRC=RCn -DrepoType=live [-Dasf.ldap.password=secret [-Dasf.ldap.usermame=user] ]

Update main distribution files

  • Checkout the top-level of the live dist project on your computer:

svn co --depth files  https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/jmeter/ dist-jmeter
  • Edit HEADER.html to modifiy with new version number
  • If necessary, add your GPG public key to KEYS
  • Commit with svn

svn commit -m "JMeter 2.8 release - Prepare update site" dist-jmeter
  • wait a day or so for mirrors to catch up

Update JMeter site

This is now done using svnmucc. Create a script - for example "updatesite.txt" - containing the following:

rm
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/site

cp
HEAD
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/branches/docs-2.8/docs
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jmeter/site

Change the /docs-2.8/ path segment above as appropriate!

Now use svnmucc to update the live site:

svnmucc -m "Create branch docs 2.8" -X updatesite.txt

The SvnPubSub system will update the live site within a few seconds.

Maven Release

  • Go to Apache Repository

  • Section Staging Repositories

  • You will receive a email with JMeter Maven Repo URLs
    • The main URL can be added to email announce

Announce

Make sure: JMeter website is update AND download mirrors too.

  • update Wiki version details
  • update doap_JMeter.rdf details in trunk and commit

svn commit -m "JMeter 2.8 release"
  • send [ANNOUNCE] e-mail to user@jmeter.a.o, dev@jmeter.a.o

    • Double check all URL in email announce!
  • also copy to announce AT ao (has to be sent from an ao e-mail address)
  • N.B. to track bounces and unsubscribes, it may be a good idea to use a separate mail to Announce

Tidy up
