It's generally regarded as unnecessary, since Java compiles fast
enough that doing a full rebuild is much simpler and safer than trying
to do an intelligent incremental build.

There are IDEs and also JavaMake that do such incremental builds, and
I played with JavaMake in the past, but the added complexity is not
worth it IMHO. It all depends on the project size. --DD
