While working on a new webdsl project, Eclipse starts building another project (which happens to be researchr), and refuses to cancel the job.

Or, how do I turn off these automatic builds of projects? I want to control when I start a build of researchr (until it is blazingly fast and I don’t notice).

Killing Eclipse and restarting doesn’t help either; it insists on building the researchr project.

This might be the issue:

  • right-click build.xml
  • Run As -> Ant Build…
  • in the ‘Build’ tab make sure ‘Build before launch’ is not checked

(new projects should have this setting already)

It’s probably a good idea to close a large project when you’re not working on it (in the right-click menu of the project), this also prevents accidental builds. Another option is to create a new workspace and create or import the new project there.
