Yesterday we announced FinalBuilder 4.
I'll be trying to blog about a new feature in FB4 every day or so... this is the first in the series :)
What's new in FinalBuilder 4 - Automatic Action Retry
FinalBuilder 4 now includes the option to allow actions to retry automatically if they fail. A maximum retry limit can be set as well as the wait time between retries. This can be useful if a particular action has a tendency to fail but might succeed if it is re-run. An example of this might be a network resource failing the first time, but the second time the network resource might be available. The retry option is available for every action in FinalBuilder 4.
Here is a screen pic of the property dialog showing the new retry options:
Obviously, after the 3rd retry and the action still fails, then it will stop retrying and fail the action as per usual. If a retry is successful, then the build continues on as the action does finally report success.
