hello, I have a large hierarchy of classes and packages. When I compile the main class(the class in which main method is defined), all the classes used in the main class and the corrosponding classes get complied. But my problem is that there are some classes(though a few), that are not referenced directly in any class, but are loaded dynamically. Even the class name is given in XML file. So, since no class have the direct reference of these few classes, they never gets compiled. I have to explicitly compile these file. Is there any better alternate for this that Sun provides to me? Thanks in advance Sandeep
A build tool is basically something that takes a list of files and commands and executes the commands on the files to build something. So, for example, it will execute javac to build the program. Therefore yes, it's a third-party tool.
