Interface CompilerAdapter

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultCompilerAdapter

public interface CompilerAdapter

The interface that all compiler adapters must adhere to.

A compiler adapter is an adapter that interprets the javac's parameters in preparation to be passed off to the compiler this adapter represents. As all the necessary values are stored in the Javac task itself, the only thing all adapters need is the javac task, the execute command and a parameterless constructor (for reflection).

Since:
Ant 1.3
