Description Jan Lahoda 2004-05-11 12:51:08 UTC
[current sources]

If the API user tries to run an ant target (using
AntTargetExecutor), there is no possibility to
change the name of the output tab that will be
used for the build output.

I see two possible solutions (without trying to be
1. Enhance the AntTargetExecutor.Env with
possibility to specify the name of the output tab.
2. Enhance it so the API user can provide his/hers
own InputOutput (althought I am not sure that this
is a good idea).
Comment 1 Jan Lahoda 2004-05-11 12:51:43 UTC
Once again: correct component is ant
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2004-05-11 17:06:09 UTC
Prefer just ability to set the name; the Ant module does special
things with InputOutput reuse.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2004-10-06 15:57:36 UTC
No use case mentioned.
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2005-08-31 00:03:05 UTC
Cf. issue #63332: there might also be cases where the caller does not wish to
create a progress task, or wishes to control its behavior somehow. TBD.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2008-03-21 22:42:59 UTC
No recorded use case.
