Subject [myrmidon] Project/Target as Tasks
Date Sun, 21 Apr 2002 01:46:06 GMT

What do you think about disapearing the recognition of Project/Target as 
separate objects? We could make Project/Target actual tasks and thus allow 
much more power when creating the model. It would also mean a vast 
simplification of our code as our ProjectBuilder just loads representation of 
one task (that happens to hold child tasks). Our TaskEvent system would also 
become simpler and we would not require any implicit information as a 
taskStarting() would be called for the TargetTask which we would transform 
into a targetStarted in ProjectListener?

A side effect of this would be a simplification of more advanced build tools 
ala Maven that could be built on top of Myrmidon. Basically it means they 
just have to load Mavens project descriptor and register a new task for 
Mavens project model.
