You could install the debug version to another dir or rename the debug version to another name.

Use the tag rule on the application target to do the rename:


rule rename ( name : type ? : property-set )
    switch [ $(property-set).get <variant> ]
        case debug : name = $(name)_dbg ;
    return [ virtual-target.add-prefix-and-suffix $(name) : $(type) : $(property-set) ] ;

I have two layer application. The second one is java and it forks the
first one. The java build process expects the executable to in a
particular location.

I use to do that

install dev_output : application

Unfortunately when I build more than one application at the same time
say debug and release jam complains for "Duplicate name of actual
target". Which is obviously correct, but what I need is just whatever
of the binaries to take precedence I do not care which one if they
both are going to be the latest version.

Ideas how I can do this?
