Subject Re: how to force recompile everything using javac task
Date Sun, 06 Jul 2008 02:56:52 GMT
Why not use the "dest" parameter and have the two <javac> task compile
their code to two different directories. That way, when you run your
build.xml again, it doesn't have to recompile everything.

I always use the "dest" parameter of the <javac> task. I mainly do
this, so all code compiles into a special build directory under the
directory where my build.xml is stored. I also build my *.jars there,
etc. That way, my <clean> target only has to delete the special build
directory.
