[kepler-dev] Subject: Kepler Startup times

There are two different tasks in the build file.  One is "run" which 
builds only jar files (I think with only classes in them, at least for 
kepler, not sure about ptII) and the other which is "run-dev" which runs 
kepler from the build/classes directory and doesn't build any jar files. 
  The run-dev takes less time to startup for developers who have to 
rebuild all the time and don't want to wait for jar files.  The run 
target probably takes less time to startup once the jar files are built. 
  I haven't tried comparing them though.
