Subject checking what should be recompiled
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 08:17:06 GMT

According to the FAQ question "Why does Ant always recompile all my Java 
files?" Ant doesn't look into the sourcecode when it desides what files 
must be compiled.

But if an interface is changed and a class, that implements this 
interface, isn't re-adjusted to these changes, Ant wouldn't tell the 
compiler to recompile it and the error woulnd't be found.

The approach of Ant is faster but todays computers are that fast, that 
some minutes more to wait are better than an undetected error.

Is is planed to change or enhance Ants behavior?
