I wonder if there is a way to distinguish between the build modes. Lets say I want to identify in the preBuildAction stage if the build is a quickbuild or full build. Is there any build in variable that holds this kind of information ?

My purpose is to check if my executable is exist when I'm starting to build in quickbuild.

Thanks, Ronen

It is currently not possible to detect if a build is quick or full build.

If you are automating your builds and/or building from command line, then you can use --setvars and specify that a full or quick build is made and the variable's value can be used to determine whether an action should be run:

$ bin/builder build /path/to/project.xml --setvars is_full_build=1

And then you can check it by doing:

<ruleList> <isTrue> <value>${is_full_build}</value> </isTrue> </ruleList>

You can find more information about --setvars option in Using the Command Line Interface section of InstallBuilder User Guide.
