No app file changed in build too restrictive (1)
The WebDSL build mentions ‘no app file changed’ and refuses to build whenever no app file changed. ALthough this is technically correct, in practice, webdsl projects consist of more types of files than just app files. For example, when I change a css rule and want to rebuild my app to check the results, it refuses to build, or when I regenerate an image and want to rebuild, it refuses to do so. Moving to a less restrictive check like no project file changed would prevent a lot of opening an app file, adding a space and saving it again.Submitted by Sander Vermolen on 16 January 2011 at 11:47
Ideally, changing static files should not require a build at all.
Note that in the current version of the plugin, you can also change the files in WebContent/ to avoid having to rebuild (just don’t forget to copy them back before rebuilding).
That’s true, not having to rebuild is even better. As for changing the files in WebContent: I am sure I will forget to copy them back frequently. I do not like to run the risk of loosing changes by a build overwriting them. I’d rather stick to doing the extra build step.
now it just skips the webdsl compiler step
