An abstract base class for all sub-tasks. Common code and the contract is defined here.

Because of the way Ant is designed all setter methods automatically are settable config parameters. Note that by default init() method inherits default setting from the containing task via DocletContext. Setter methods in sub-task gives the user finer control over config parameters of the sub-task.
