Subject [jira] Commented: (MINVOKER-63) Inject some Verifier-like component into the scripts to ease common assertions
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2008 12:19:48 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on MINVOKER-63:

Not sure whether we need those. I currently have a simple/lightweight POJO class in mind (i.e.
not a component in the Plexus sense) that just has some constructors for initialization and
that's it. The {{dispose()}} is intended to release resources like file handles on archives.
However, it's not fully thought up (at least on my side ;-) ).

To further illustrate the intended usage:
{code:java|title=In the Invoker Plugin}
// setup the asserter for the current IT
Asserter asserter = new Asserter();
asserter.setCurrentDirectory( basedir );

// pass it on to the script interpreter as a global variable
runHookScript( ..., asserter );

// tidy up
{code:java|title=In the Hook Script}
asserter.assertFile( "target/foo-1.0.jar" );
asserter.setCurrentDirectory( "target/exploded" );
asserter.assertFile( "WEB-INF/lib/bar-1.0.jar" );

> Many pre-/post-build hook scripts share very similar patterns to check for existence/absence
of files, JAR entries etc. Those scripts could be greatly condensed if the Invoker Plugin
provided a Verifier-like component to perform these common assertions using dedicated methods.
In detail, offer {{Verifier.assert*()}} for the scripts.
