Subject terminating running builds better
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2007 17:12:48 GMT

I'm midway through adding the smartfrog features to run ant builds 
remotely; buildexceptions will get wrapped and sent back over the wire 
to the caller via our friend RMI. as will, ultimately, the logs. you can 
use this to run build files as part of a big deployment, and be able to 
dynamically tweak the log levels as you go.

one things I'm worrying about is how to stop long-running builds more 
cleanly. I'm thinking of an executor that polls some halt variable 
between targets, but that does nothing for tasks. Can/should we add 
something to project, so that you can actually interrupt project 
execution between tasks? We coudl through a BuildInterruptedException.

What do IDEs do to stop ant builds? just kill the thread/process?
