Subject Re: How to compile co-dependent files
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2008 17:25:39 GMT

I solved my problem for the time being by refactoring my classes to adhere to
a strict convention whereby the compile order is A,B,C and the observed
convention is:

target A requires no other classes - (just simple display objects)
target B references classes in A only - (EJBs)
target C can reference classes in A or B - (utility/controllere beans)

But, my original question was: Is it possible for classes in A to reference
classes in B or C? Or classes in B to reference classes in C? etc. etc.

I wanted to spare everyone the burden of including my build file as I think
my question is more general than specific. Thanks!
