Description ScottKurz 2013-02-05 17:44:23 UTC
The Decider interface Javadoc repeates says in three method-level places (actually one whole method block is a dup):

"The return value updates the current job execution's exit status. "

That's misleading, since it's better described at the class-level Javadoc:

" * The decider returns a String value which becomes the exit 
 * status value on which the decision chooses the next transition. "

We have reduced the number of methods on decider to exactly one.  The class level java doc will be updated consistent with what you suggest.  Change will be in PFD v1.5.
