Subject Re: Building a module only when changed
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2010 14:33:10 GMT
This sounds more like an issue for your build system rather than the
software. I think what you're looking for is a "Continuous
Integration" server such as Hudson, CruiseControl, or Bamboo. There
are loads of others, but those are the 3 I hear about most frequently.

These typically monitor your SCM for changes and then invoke a build
mechanism (Ant files, Maven, custom schell scripts, etc.), and then
publish the resulting artifacts somewhere (upload to FTP, publish in
Ivy, etc).


Is that what you meant?
