Description _ gtzabari 2008-04-23 14:42:30 UTC
dev build 200804230004

1) Project A depends on project B
2) I toggle the value of "Generate Debugging Info" on project B and run project A by hitting F6
3) I expect Project B to recompile before Project A is run (it will change its output!) but it does not

I know the feature is called "Track Java Dependencies" but I believe the meaning is tracking project dependencies, even
if they reside in the project configuration itself. Certainly this is what *I* am expecting. If this isn't the case I'd
like to modify this issue into a RFE asking for Netbeans to do this.

Tomasi, this is rather enhancement, right?
Comment 2 Tomas Zezula 2008-09-25 12:36:46 UTC
It is caused by a fact that a change of the project metadata doesn't cause rebuild of project, there is already an enhancement to change this behavior, not 
planed to frozen NB 6.5. For next release it should be not very hard to add it, for example using some marker file.
In your case, the problem is that Ant thinks that the project B is up to date since there are no changed java files.
