Is there a faster way to compile?
There are several techniques that can increase the speed of compilation.
Split the compilation into two steps
First compile all of the source files with -jj (and omit -jc) to produce just the .java intermediate source files.
Then compile all of the .java source files into .class files with the JDK compiler using wildcards (e.g. javac *.java)
Split the compilation into two steps and run them in parallel
First compile with -jj (and omit -jc) to produce just the .java intermediate source file for a single program (e.g. vcc -jj ... PROG1.cbl)
Then compile the .java source into .class files with the JDK compiler in the background (e.g. javac PROG1.java &)
Use the IDE
Put your source code into an IDE project
Let the IDE build the objects in the background
Create a build.xml script including dependencies
Run the ant utility to compile just the files that require it
Create a makefile
Run the make utility to compile just the files that require it
Ask Veryant Support to help you set up iscbatch
Use your current build scripts or a makefile
