Class TaskAdapter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.lang.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 Detail

      • TaskAdapter

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

        public TaskAdapter​(java.lang.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 Detail

      • checkTaskClass

        public static void checkTaskClass​(java.lang.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.

        Check if the proxy class is a valid class to use with this adapter. The class must have a public no-arg "execute()" method.
        Specified by:
        checkProxyClass in interface TypeAdapter
        proxyClass - the class to check.

        Executes the proxied task.

        public void setProxy​(java.lang.Object o)
        Sets the target object to proxy for.
        Specified by:
