Re: GWT compiler produces different hashes for .cache.html files on each compile

Hi Rocco,

thank you for your reply. Unfortunately another team manages deployments for this product, and I am not in a position to alter the path they've chosen. 

Anyway, I would love to know if this change in behaviour of the GWT compiler was intended.

I strongly believe is NOT intentional.
But it could also be produced by some generators that don't guarantee a stable output (AFAICT, those in GWT proper are OK, but third-party ones can be the culprit here)
I noticed that only some permutations are affected. For the time being I will try replacing linkers to work around this issue.

Try diffing the files to see what the differences are. If you reproduce them with -style PRETTY, or simply -draft, that would make the diff easier to read, to be able to find the culprit (generator, compiler, linker)
And if it doesn't come from a third-party library, please file a bug.

BTW, do (did) you also reproduce the behavior with an earlier version of GWT?
