Check your build procedure performance

Starting the work with legacy ant-based builders check the performance of the executed tasks and targets obligatory. The experience shows that there can be a lot of redundant operations there so removing them you can reach significant performance increasing. The best way to measure the ant build procedure performance is to use third-party listeners like this or to write your own.
Just introduce -listener fully.qualified.class.name option into your build.bat ant calling or specify it in your IDE execution context.
