I have a little question about one thing in IntelliJ and Eclipse.
I used Eclipse for some time but I moved to IntelliJ.

I noticed that whenever I exported a .jar in Eclipse that the resulting .jar was instantly in the output directory.
Now with IntelliJ when I want to do the same I have to build the artifact. It takes some seconds until the resulting .jar is finished and copied to the output directory.

I really would like to know what IntelliJ does what Eclipse doesn't. Is it possible to achieve the same "fast" exporting in IntelliJ like in Eclipse?
