Re: [cdt-dev] Build issues

Hi Sergei,

This topic has come up quite a bit in the last few days, please see the meeting minutes for the CDT call last week (relevant part quoted below) as a starting point.

Unfortunately I cannot answer your actual question, as far as I know all the people who developed this code are no longer active in CDT anymore. Therefore we, as the current active community, need to decide what is right going forward and do that.

Project references
  • John shared his investigations on fixing and improving project references
  • See Bug 566892 and linked bugs in Comment 1
  • John wants to make changes - Some objections from Alexander F were discussed. Substance of discussion to be discussed in a bug.

Hello All,
I would like to open a discussion around managed build behavior in CDT 9.10. 

What I currently see as strange behavior is the declaration of the project references at page "Project References" leads to a hierarchical build procedure where dependent projects will be built first and at the same time the settings page "Path and Symbols" exist to specify the dependency between build configurations.

If both options (the reference projects and the build configuration dependency) specified for the main project (in my case testHostProject_M)  the build procedure will invoke build command twice for the same projects. This behavior leads to misunderstanding of build procedure for end users and increases build time significantly. 

Could someone clarify is it designed or a side effect or any?

(pls see the screens)
