Class MultiInteractiveTask

All Implemented Interfaces:
InteractiveTask, java.io.Serializable, Task

public class MultiInteractiveTask
extends java.lang.Object
implements InteractiveTask

This allows many InteractiveTasks to be bundled togather as one InteractiveTask.

All tasks will be started simultaneously and the task as a whole will only finish when all tasks have completed.

For more flexibility in managing tasks dynamically use FineGrainedInteractiveTasks.
