Description Milan Kubec 2004-11-03 15:32:14 UTC
[release40-200411021800, JDK 1.4.2_06]

Action 'Compile Package' on <default package>
compiles entire source tree. It's not very useful.
It should either enumerate those files for
compilation in the default package or be disabled
on default package.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2004-11-08 21:44:14 UTC
Probably the action provider is setting javac.includes to e.g. "**"
when "*" is correct. Similarly, selecting Compile Package on
src/org/foo/bar should probably send "org/foo/bar/*" rather than
"org/foo/bar/" (~ "org/foo/bar/**").
Comment 2 Tomas Zezula 2004-11-09 15:28:46 UTC
It was designed to compile whole subtree **.
But it can be changed to *. I have no strong opinion concerning this.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2004-11-09 23:37:56 UTC
I guess the expectation is that only direct child files should be
compiled, assuming the user is looking at a standard (list-style)
package view...

Note, once again, we are missing a proper API for distinguishing a
package from a folder in a Lookup (e.g. action selection). Affects VCS
integration, search, etc. We should seriously consider defining such
an API and using it consistently. Otherwise you will fix this in the
obvious way - and then cause a new bug for people who use a
traditional tree view for their packages and are expecting Compile to
operate recursively.

Compile on package compiles only single level. If switched to tree package view,
it compiles the subtree.
