Currently there is a long compilation time before running any Groovy script (at first run or after editing a script).

Solution 0

  • resolve TXM plugin dependencies to only keep the necessary plugin loaders (e.g the "org.txm.rcp.*" plugins usually include "org.txm.rcp" plugin)

Solution A

Do not compile the import modules scripts if sources are not newer than the class files. Hence :
- ship the import modules Groovy classes with TXM
- generalize to all Groovy scripts if possible
- compare the class file compilations date with the last source modifications date

Find a way to:
- pre-compile Groovy scripts published by TXM plugins (org.txm.groovy.core, etc.)
- and ensure the pre-compiled classes are overriden by the TXMHOME/scripts/groovy/user Groovy scripts

Solution B

- restore the Groovy class files build by the RCP build
- if necessary, force the GroovyScriptEngine to recompile the import module files (importer, annotate, compiler, pager) and their dependencies (Groovy classes)
