With SDK older than 1.5.0, when Ti developer "Launch" button is clicked, application is immediately displaying in the emulator:
[INFO] Building test for Android ... one moment
[INFO] Copying project resources..
[INFO] Tiapp.xml unchanged, skipping class generation
[INFO] Manifest unchanged, skipping Java build
[INFO] Re-launching application ... test 
[INFO] Relaunched test ... Application should be running.
With 1.5.0 & 1.5.1 each time I get a "compiling Android Resources":
[INFO] Building test for Android ... one moment
[INFO] Titanium SDK version: 1.5.1 (12/16/10 16:25 16bbb92)
[INFO] Copying project resources..
[INFO] Tiapp.xml unchanged, skipping class generation
[INFO] Compiling Javascript Resources ...
[INFO] Compiling Android Resources... This could take some time

    i've done a pastie for :

    1.2 SDK TRACE : http://pastie.org/1465943">http://pastie.org/1465943

    1.5.1 SDK TRACE : http://pastie.org/1465947">http://pastie.org/1465947

    this is the default app those traces are the second click (not first build)

    1.5.1 is doing a bunch of other thing even if files aren't modified

    I had a quick (& first time) look at builder.py : in 1.5.1 it looks like generated_classes_built (line 1378) is always set to true, changing it to False by-pass the compilation.(what a time saving!)

    in 1.2.0 there was this test :

               generated_classes_built = False
               if manifest_changed or tiapp_changed or self.deploy_type == "production":
                   generated_classes_built = True
                   print "[INFO] Manifest unchanged, skipping Java build"

    but it does not enter elif (line 1447) to print message : info("Re-launching application ... %s" % self.name)

  3. Stephane 2011-04-15

    The "not entering elif on line 1447" matter is a problem with the if "not self.sdcard_copy" (line 1439)

    removing it leads to :

    [INFO] Re-launching application ... Project name [INFO] Relaunched Project Name ... Application should be running.

    BUT modificatons on files are not seen (for example changing a text in a file isn't pushed on the Simulator)
