Hi,

we have a problem with our Builder. Sometimes Eclipse triggers a full build when there is no obvious reason to do so. One example: we are adding a class to a project and for (all) other projects, which are in no way related to our current project, a full build is triggered.

This should be no problem if builds are cheap, but for us they aren't. So we just want to start our builder if something in the project changed.

Is there a possibility to find out the reason for a full build? Or a possibility to find out if anything changed in the project? This would be something that could help us decide whether we want to start our builder or not.

It would suffice if some central build manager class would provide a method that can be queried by a registered builder to find out why the latest build has been initiated for a certain project.

Thanks,
Fabian Noth

That is one of my pet peeves with Eclipse :)
