Description Simon Hausmann 2011-11-21 07:21:40 PST
One aspect that makes working with debug builds very annoying is that after touching a file in for example WebKit2, the WebKit2 static library needs to be re-linked and then the final QtWebKit shared library. This can take a long time. We should introduce a special build mode that will build all the convenience libraries (jsc, wc, wk2) as shared libraries (with all symbols exported), so that touching a file in say WebKit2 results in only one short relinking of the WebKit2 library.

This isn't quite perfect yet. We can also keep it here for a while, so don't hesitate to r- until the load() thing is cleaned up.

View in context: https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=116083&action=review let's land it like this, as it improves productivity for working with debug builds. we can always tweak it if there are better ways to do it :) > Tools/qmake/mkspecs/features/force_static_libs_as_shared.prf:10 > + CONFIG -= hide_symbols style
