Subject [jira] Commented: (BUILDR-297) Add Support for Continuous Compilation Mode
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2009 18:41:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BUILDR-297?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12731037#action_12731037

Alex Boisvert commented on BUILDR-297:
--------------------------------------

I would also go down the mocks approach, if only because writing specs that run concurrent
code (reliably) is more difficult.   (And more difficult for the next person to read and reason
with)

> 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".
