      • supportsNonFileResources

        protected boolean supportsNonFileResources()
        Whether this task can deal with non-file resources.

        This implementation returns true only if this task is <gzip>. Any subclass of this class that also wants to support non-file resources needs to override this method. We need to do so for backwards compatibility reasons since we can't expect subclasses to support resources.

        Overrides:
        supportsNonFileResources in class Pack
        Returns:
        true if this case supports non file resources.
