Subject Re: [PATCH] Less memory consumption for subbuilds
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2000 13:20:06 GMT

So what would be the problem with having a check in execute to see if p1 is
null?  If so, call init.  Possible problems?  We only need p1 to exist
before execute so the createProperty method works.  Same check in
createProperty?  Lots of seemingly redundant calls, but it does get us what
we need - on demand use of a project.

I wasn't talking about a Java language reference but rather about
Project.getReferences. Should have been clearer.

On second thought it doesn't work. Each task can be executed multiple
times via

((Target) project.getTargets().get("nameOfSurroundingTarget")).execute()

so we can never be sure a task won't be called a second time. Each
target can be addressed that way.
