Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-190) Derby build should be incremental
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2005 23:58:16 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-190?page=comments#action_61853 ]
     
Jeremy Boynes commented on DERBY-190:
-------------------------------------

The ant task the build uses to compile is incremental but does not check dependencies. Thus
a second build will recompile files that have changed but not files that depend on them that
have not been touched. This works most of the time.

The clobber (and clean which removes the object code but not generated source code) targets
would typically be run after an update, before a testrun (and hence before commit), or when
you see strange AbstractMethodErrors and the like.

> You should not have to clobber and rebuild from scratch each time you update or modify
your source.  This is time-consuming and affects overall productivity.
