My eclipse is acting really weird. When I do a build/clean and build, it doesn't throw any errors, but in fact it doesn't really do a new build. Only if I restart and do a build, does it do an actual build. Would anyone know what's going on?

Do you have the option "Build automatically" selected in the preferences?

Go to eclipse's project-> Build working set->make sure all your working sets are selected
Then go to project->select Build Automatic option
