Figure 2: A timeline view of building one of Buck's tests before and after the introduction of rule pipelining. Without pipelining, Buck must completely finish compiling the library rule at (1) before it can begin compiling the test rule at (2). With pipelining, Buck produces the library's stub JAR quickly at (3) and can start compiling the test at (4) while completing the compilation of the library rule in parallel.
