Subject Re: dependency checking is not included in Ant. ???
Date Sun, 07 Aug 2005 03:03:56 GMT
not exactly. that paragraph continues:

"the tasks themselves can do dependency checking or not. A full java 
build using Jikes is so fast that dependency checking is relatively 
moot, while many of the other tasks (but not all), compare the timestamp 
of the source file with that of the destination file before acting."\

as well as jikes, most tasks that you'll want to use do a timestamp 
check (javac, war, zip, to name a few).
