Subject [jira] Commented: (BUILDR-297) Add Support for Continuous Compilation Mode
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2009 16:43:14 GMT


Daniel Spiewak commented on BUILDR-297:

Oh, here's another question: should this task be recursive?  I'm not entirely sure how Buildr
handles that, but it makes sense that continuous compilation would monitor not only the current
project but any sub-projects as well.

> Buildr should include a project_local :cc task which activates a continuous compilation
mode.  This mode should monitor source and test directories for changes, triggering a recompilation
as necessary.  Given Buildr's primitive recompilation detection (especially with Groovy and
Scala) and its extremely long startup time on JRuby, this feature should save a great deal
of time, particularly in a quick-rebuild scenario.  For this reason, I am assigning it a priority
of "Major".
