Overview
The project compilation is a process used to:
  • Check the consistency of the syntaxes used in the database of authorized WLanguage syntaxes.
  • Check the existence and the consistency of the identifiers used.
  • Prepare the optimized code that will be used at run time.
As soon as a modification is performed in an element, this element is recompiled.
To force a full recompilation of the project, select "Project .. Recompile the project". To force a full recompilation of the project, on the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, expand "Recompile and synchronize" and select "Recompile the project".
During the recompilation, the "CPL" directory of project is deleted and re-created. This directory contains all the compiled codes of the project elements.
Note: Repairing (or upgrading) the project is used to re-save all the project elements. All the project elements are re-saved in the format of the version currently used. The project is then recompiled.
Tip: We advise you to entirely recompile the project before creating the executable or the library in order to check the consistency of the entire project.
Automatic recompilation of project
The different options for compiling the project are grouped in the project description ("Project .. Project description", "Compilation" tab).The different options for compiling the project are grouped in the project description:
  1. On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, click "Description".
  2. Display the "Compilation" tab.
The option "Recompile the project before generating the applications, the libraries, the components, ..." is used to force the recompilation of the project before each major operation. This option is recommended during the multiple generation from a project.
This option is also proposed in all the wizards used to perform a deployment operation (executable creation, library creation, multiple generation, ...).
See Compilation options of the project for more details.
