An improvement to BuildListener #4562 ·

BuildListener is already very good with the current functions. But I want to add a few other things.

void buildFinished();
void buildRecommended();
void buildUnRecommended();


void buildFinished();
void buildRecommended();
void buildUnRecommended();
boolean recommendBuild();
boolean unRecommendBuild();

There are several things that need to be done at the same time when a build is recommended and unrecommended. i am using "void buildRecommended();" for that. However, it always returns void and when an error occurs, the build status is still changed to recommended while in fact the related tasks have failed.
@robinshen Can this be applied?

You may throw exception when there is something wrong and want to prevent build from being recommended/unrecommented. ·

Hello@robinshen ,
I threw an exception but it didn't prevent the build from being changed to recommended.
Please check

try {
	for (BuildListener listener: PluginManager.instance.getExtensions(BuildListener.class))
} finally {

Is it possible to add a catch block to revert build status when an exception occurs?

} catch (Exception e) {

How do you think?

Are you recommending via restful api. I just add a plugin contributing a BuildListener extension point throwing exception in buildRecommended method, and the restful api call will not change build status from successful to recommended, which is the expected behavior.

BTW: I am testing with QB14 ·

"the restful api call will not change build status from successful to recommended"
It doesn't work the same with buttons. Can you make the buttons work like this too?

I see. This will be addressed in next patch release.
