If you would choose this option, then I suggest you change the return
type to be some class or interface, not just an int, for extensibility.
You may find it useful to return a descriptive error message, or perhaps
warning messages.

For now the return type could be as simple as:

   public interface ExecutionResult {
      int getStatus();
