Or you could use <javamake> from SunLabs... See the site for a link. I
experimented with it, and it worked, but never made it to production. To
ensure everything's fine dependency-wise, do full rebuilds, which is often
fast enough for most Java projects. --DD

Use dependset - it's flexible enough for most things.

If you think that it's not advanced enough, then you can write a custom
selector - that way you could check an arbitrarily complex dependecy by
writing some Java code to select the files for you.

I've done this and it works great.

Subject: Can Ant do non-simplistic dependancy checking?


Our current project has been going well using standard time-stamp based
dependancy checking, but we have the need to implement
some real dependancy checking.
For example, checking not only Java<->Class dependancy, but also
recompiling any Java
files which depend on a given compiled file.

Is this possible using Ant?

Thanks
