Subject Interesting findings on jdk1.6 compilation speed
Date Mon, 02 May 2011 08:24:56 GMT
A colleague of mine just discovered that jdk1.6 compilation is 
*massively* slower
due to javac constantly trying to resolve the manifest class-path 
element for every jar file it opens.

He claims this increases his compilation time from 5 seconds -> 30 
seconds, and was
introduced with

He has a temporary workaround which is to remove the manifest file, and 
he's considering
deploying modified versions to his local nexus.

Anyone have any other fixes for this or any other solutions ?
