Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACE-513) Improve workspace API
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2015 14:46:38 GMT


J.W. Janssen commented on ACE-513:

{quote}I am not a big fan of creating multiple commands for the same things. Especially since
the Gogo shell already provides an alias command that you can use if you don't like the default
command names.{quote}

didn't know about the alias support in Gogo, and it would make this change not really necessary.
The only thing is that we now always have to declare these aliases in scripts.

> The current workspace API has a couple of drawbacks that makes it less efficient when
used in scripts. For example, the create methods ({{c*}}) do not all return the created repository
object, needing a lookup if you want to do other stuff with that repository object after creation.
> A list of proposed changes:
> * let the create methods return the created object;
> * the {{da}} method should accept an {{ArtifactObject}} instead of an {{RepositoryObject}}
(conform the other delete methods);
> * {{lr}} and {{lrp}} both do the same thing: list resource processors. Remove {{lr}}
in favour of {{lrp}};
> * expose the {{createArtifact}}, {{createFeature}}, etc from {{WorkspaceImpl}} as this
makes it easier to read in scripts (the shorthand versions are useful when working directly
in gogo shell).
> Any thoughts, remarks?
