so, the way I understand it, when it comes to compilation,there's conditional, and there's clean: confitional compilation only rewrites files that have changed, clean compilation blows them all away and starts fresh
build and rebuild and are clean, and make and compile are conditional... true?
are build and rebuild exactly the same things? are make and compile exactly the same things?
I have a multi-module project in which one module is constantly changing, and one changes almost never. so I disable compilation on that one, to save time during each test run. but sometimes I do want to rebuild, not just make, that module. is there a "rebuild module" command? dont see one
another question: from the docs and looking at the autogenerated ant scripts, intellij by default creates two subdirectories for each module: testing and production... I understand this distinction in a general way, but what exactly is the story here? am I able to define two different build profiles, one for testing, one for production? I dont see any config panel for all that
and, must have set up my output configs incorrectly because when I use rebuild project, I get one folder per module, no production/testing dirs
somehow my autogenerated ant scripts are getting scrambled... or?
