Description

Macros should be callable directly with parameters through the "args" Groovy binding mecanism.

This would allow the user to call macros directly from within Groovy scripts.

For example, with the following scenario:
  • TestMacro.groovy is defined in the CLASSPATH
  • code of a calling script:
    import TestMacro
    
    TestMacro.main("foobar", "2")
    TestMacro.main("foobar", "1")
    
If args size is bigger than 0, then we have to decide of the behavior with respect to the parameters dialog UI:
  • A) we can switch off the parameters dialog UI, and decide how to deal with the args available
  • B) we can use the parameters dialog UI to ask for some missing mandatory parameters
  • C) we can use the parameters dialog UI to ask for some missing parameters

A first implementation should implement at least A).
