Business value

Avoid tedious and manual work on compiling and deploying extensions in the correct order.

Feature details

Until now, you have been forced to manually ensure that projects with dependencies are built in the correct order, and deploying extensions with dependencies required manually uninstalling and reinstalling dependent extensions. With the 2019 release wave 2, this is managed by the tools, by traversing the dependency graph.
