The size of cod file build by bb ants is 4 times than build by eclipse plugin in

I found the size of cod build with bb ant tools is 410k, and build with eclipse plugin is only 130k.


I open the jar file and found jar build with bb ant tools contains 5 cod files,









and the jar build with eclipse only contains 2 cod files,

maybe they use different jde versions to build? after 4.2.1 (iirc) the build compression was changed and cods tend to be a bit larger.

feel free to press the like button on the right side to thank the user that helped you.
please mark posts as solved if you found a solution.

I've tried 4.2.1, 4.5.0, 4.6.1, 4.7.0, 5.0.0, and got the same result.


I think os eclipse plugin using is 4.5.0.
