# multiplatform

Hi everyone, I need some help understanding how local multiplatform libraries are built when we build our project. Our current set-up is: • We have a multiplatform library that we develop internally, which has targets for JVM and JS. • We have a server project that uses the library mentioned above and is developed using Kotlin/JVM. • We have a web app that also uses the library mentioned above and is developed using Kotlin/JS. When we build the web app using
./gradlew build
file is created, which makes sense. However, when we build the server using
./gradlew build
then the
file is also created, even though the server code is 100% Kotlin/JVM. My assumption is that the JS part of the multiplatform library is being built when we build the server, but shouldn't that be skipped autoamtically? My questions are: 1. Is the assumption above correct? Or is there something I'm missing? 2. Should we keep building the server using
./gradlew build
or should we use a different Gradle task for this that doesn't build the JS code in the multiplatform library? Thanks for the help!
