Subject [jira] Created: (HARMONY-439) java build improvements - delegation to modules

java build improvements - delegation to modules

         Key: HARMONY-439
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-439
     Project: Harmony
        Type: Improvement

  Components: Classlib  
    Reporter: Mark Hindess
    Priority: Minor

There are a couple of issues that could be tidied up:

1) Currently we build java code into both 'build' and 'modules/*/bin/main' - we might avoid
problems if we always built code to 'build'.  This also means we build everything twice ...
once into 'build' then again into 'modules/*/bin/main' when the tests are run.

2) We build jars in two places 'make/build-java.xml' and 'modules/*/make/common/build.xml'
- HARMONY-431 is proof that this is a bad idea.

3) To make matters worse 'make/build-java.xml' builds the jars to a location under 'build'
where as the module build creates straight into 'deploy'.

I suggest fixing these issues by delegating the building of the jars to the module ant files
and to always build the code to the top-level 'build' directory.

I will submit a patch shortly.
