Is it possible to have multiple listeners on the same event?
For instance, two different plug-ins include listeners to the same event such as an issue create event. Is this possible, and if so when the event occurs and the plug-in action is triggered what would be the execution order? which plug-in action takes precedence?
Any view on this would be much appreciated.
this is definetely possible, I am already using this. After all this is what events are for, isn't it You can even have more than one method annotated with @EventListener in the same listener class listening to the same event class (i.e. taking the same argument).
The order on the other hand is not defined (afaik). As far as I can tell from the sourcecode events might even get invoked asynchronously. Practically I think the order is mostly defined by the order the plugins are deployed.
For multiple listener methods in one listener class the order is stable until you reload the plugin but otherwise undefined.
