Incremental build [message #488027] Fri, 25 September 2009 07:34 Go to next message

Hello

We've been using PDE for the last couple of years and have found
that one of the biggest limitations we've experienced is the lack
of an incremental build. Are there plans for B3 to support this
at all?

Regards

Michael Charlton.

Yes there is. We plan to have an 'UpToDateStrategy' attached to each BuildPart in the model. This strategy is meant to
be the basic mechanism for the incremental builds. In its simplest form, it just checks if the target is more recent
then any of its prerequisites but more advanced strategies will be available. One that comes to mind is of course
comparing binary files with their corresponding source files and what they in turn depend on (i.e. traditional
makedepend functionality).
