Decider Javadoc language on exitStatus is misleading
Last modified: 2013-03-01 14:34:40 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.
