If you disable depends you will get all classes compiled. Thats the
behaviour of the jikes compiler, perhaps ANT wraps some dependancy logic
around compiler calls. You could allways call the compiler


How about a single 'Top level class' that references ALL of the
projects classes. Then by compiling that, all referenced classes
would be recompiled. Hacky I admit :-)
