Class TaskAdapter

All Implemented Interfaces:
Cloneable, TypeAdapter

public class TaskAdapter extends Task implements TypeAdapter
Uses introspection to "adapt" an arbitrary Bean which doesn't itself extend Task, but still contains an execute method and optionally a setProject method.
  • Constructor Details

    • TaskAdapter

      public TaskAdapter()
      No-arg constructor for reflection.
    • TaskAdapter

      public TaskAdapter(Object proxy)
      Constructor for given proxy. So you could write easier code
       myTaskContainer.addTask(new TaskAdapter(myProxy));
      proxy - The object which Ant should use as task.
  • Method Details

    • checkTaskClass

      public static void checkTaskClass(Class<?> taskClass, Project project)
      Checks whether or not a class is suitable to be adapted by TaskAdapter. If the class is of type Dispatchable, the check is not performed because the method that will be executed will be determined only at runtime of the actual task and not during parse time. This only checks conditions which are additionally required for tasks adapted by TaskAdapter. Thus, this method should be called by Project.checkTaskClass. Throws a BuildException and logs as Project.MSG_ERR for conditions that will cause the task execution to fail. Logs other suspicious conditions with Project.MSG_WARN.
      taskClass - Class to test for suitability. Must not be null.
      project - Project to log warnings/errors to. Must not be null.

    • checkProxyClass

      public void checkProxyClass(Class<?> proxyClass)

      Specified by:
      checkProxyClass in interface TypeAdapter
      proxyClass - the class to check.
    • execute

      public void execute() throws BuildException
      Executes the proxied task.
      execute in class Task

      public void setProxy(Object o)
      Sets the target object to proxy for.
      Specified by:
      setProxy in interface TypeAdapter
      o - The target object. Must not be null.
    • getProxy

      public Object getProxy()
