Interface ArgumentProcessor


  • public interface ArgumentProcessor
    Processor of arguments of the command line.

    Arguments supported by third party code should not conflict with Ant core ones. It is then recommended to chose specific 'enough' argument name, avoiding for instance one letter arguments. By the way, if there any conflict, Ant will take precedence.

    Since:
    1.9

      • readArguments

        int readArguments​(java.lang.String[] args,
                          int pos)
        Read the arguments from the command line at the specified position

        If the argument is not supported, returns -1. Else, the position of the first argument not supported.

        Parameters:
        args - String[]
        pos - int
        Returns:
        int
      • handleArg

        boolean handleArg​(java.util.List<java.lang.String> args)
        If some arguments matched with readArguments(String[], int), this method is called after all arguments were parsed. Returns true if Ant should stop there, ie the build file not parsed and the project should not be executed.
        Parameters:
        args - List<String>
        Returns:
        boolean
      • prepareConfigure

        void prepareConfigure​(Project project,
                              java.util.List<java.lang.String> args)
        If some arguments matched with readArguments(String[], int), this method is called just before the project being configured
        Parameters:
        project - Project
        args - List<String>
      • handleArg

        boolean handleArg​(Project project,
                          java.util.List<java.lang.String> arg)
        Handle the arguments with readArguments(String[], int), just after the project being configured. Returns true if Ant should stop there, ie the build file not parsed and the project should not be executed.
        Parameters:
        project - Project
        arg - List<String>
        Returns:
        boolean
      • printUsage

        void printUsage​(java.io.PrintStream writer)
        Print the usage of the supported arguments
        Parameters:
        writer - PrintStream
