There are apparently use cases for deep, crosslinked projects of Java EE type. The fix for j2seproject could be ported
to these project types.
Not planned for 6.8.
A JEE project that I'm working on is starting to exponentially take longer to build. Each new EJB project added to the EAR and dependant on a parent shared jar increases the build time.
Any ETA on a future build?
Sorry, no imminent plans to implement this.
Note that Maven projects are unaffected, only legacy Ant-based projects.
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
Thanks for your cooperation,
