Constructor Detail

BeanContextChildSupport

public BeanContextChildSupport()
construct a BeanContextChildSupport where this class has been subclassed in order to implement the JavaBean component itself.


BeanContextChildSupport

public BeanContextChildSupport(BeanContextChild bcc)
construct a BeanContextChildSupport where the JavaBean component itself implements BeanContextChild, and encapsulates this, delegating that interface to this implementation

Method Detail

setBeanContext

public void setBeanContext(BeanContext bc)
                    throws PropertyVetoException
Sets the BeanContext for this BeanContextChildSupport.

Specified by:
setBeanContext in interface BeanContextChild
Parameters:
bc - the new value to be assigned to the BeanContext property
Throws:
PropertyVetoException - if the change is rejected
PropertyVetoException

getBeanContext

public BeanContext getBeanContext()
Gets the nesting BeanContext for this BeanContextChildSupport.

Specified by:
getBeanContext in interface BeanContextChild
Returns:
the nesting BeanContext for this BeanContextChildSupport.

addPropertyChangeListener

public void addPropertyChangeListener(String name,
                                      PropertyChangeListener pcl)
Add a PropertyChangeListener for a specific property. The same listener object may be added more than once. For each property, the listener will be invoked the number of times it was added for that property. If name or pcl is null, no exception is thrown and no action is taken.

Specified by:
addPropertyChangeListener in interface BeanContextChild
Parameters:
name - The name of the property to listen on
pcl - The PropertyChangeListener to be added

removePropertyChangeListener

public void removePropertyChangeListener(String name,
                                         PropertyChangeListener pcl)
Remove a PropertyChangeListener for a specific property. If pcl was added more than once to the same event source for the specified property, it will be notified one less time after being removed. If name is null, no exception is thrown and no action is taken. If pcl is null, or was never added for the specified property, no exception is thrown and no action is taken.

Specified by:
removePropertyChangeListener in interface BeanContextChild
Parameters:
name - The name of the property that was listened on
pcl - The PropertyChangeListener to be removed

addVetoableChangeListener

public void addVetoableChangeListener(String name,
                                      VetoableChangeListener vcl)
Add a VetoableChangeListener for a specific property. The same listener object may be added more than once. For each property, the listener will be invoked the number of times it was added for that property. If name or vcl is null, no exception is thrown and no action is taken.

Specified by:
addVetoableChangeListener in interface BeanContextChild
Parameters:
name - The name of the property to listen on
vcl - The VetoableChangeListener to be added

removeVetoableChangeListener

public void removeVetoableChangeListener(String name,
                                         VetoableChangeListener vcl)
Removes a VetoableChangeListener. If pcl was added more than once to the same event source for the specified property, it will be notified one less time after being removed. If name is null, no exception is thrown and no action is taken. If vcl is null, or was never added for the specified property, no exception is thrown and no action is taken.

Specified by:
removeVetoableChangeListener in interface BeanContextChild
Parameters:
name - The name of the property that was listened on
vcl - The VetoableChangeListener to be removed

serviceRevoked

public void serviceRevoked(BeanContextServiceRevokedEvent bcsre)
A service provided by the nesting BeanContext has been revoked. Subclasses may override this method in order to implement their own behaviors.

Specified by:
serviceRevoked in interface BeanContextServiceRevokedListener
Parameters:
bcsre - The BeanContextServiceRevokedEvent fired as a result of a service being revoked

serviceAvailable

public void serviceAvailable(BeanContextServiceAvailableEvent bcsae)
A new service is available from the nesting BeanContext. Subclasses may override this method in order to implement their own behaviors

Specified by:
serviceAvailable in interface BeanContextServicesListener
Parameters:
bcsae - The BeanContextServiceAvailableEvent fired as a result of a service becoming available

getBeanContextChildPeer

public BeanContextChild getBeanContextChildPeer()
Gets the BeanContextChild associated with this BeanContextChildSupport.

Returns:
the BeanContextChild peer of this class

isDelegated

public boolean isDelegated()
Reports whether or not this class is a delegate of another.

Returns:
true if this class is a delegate of another

firePropertyChange

public void firePropertyChange(String name,
                               Object oldValue,
                               Object newValue)
Report a bound property update to any registered listeners. No event is fired if old and new are equal and non-null.

Parameters:
name - The programmatic name of the property that was changed
oldValue - The old value of the property
newValue - The new value of the property

fireVetoableChange

public void fireVetoableChange(String name,
                               Object oldValue,
                               Object newValue)
                        throws PropertyVetoException
Report a vetoable property update to any registered listeners. If anyone vetos the change, then fire a new event reverting everyone to the old value and then rethrow the PropertyVetoException.

No event is fired if old and new are equal and non-null.

Parameters:
name - The programmatic name of the property that is about to change
oldValue - The old value of the property
newValue - - The new value of the property
Throws:
PropertyVetoException - if the recipient wishes the property change to be rolled back.

validatePendingSetBeanContext

public boolean validatePendingSetBeanContext(BeanContext newValue)
Called from setBeanContext to validate (or otherwise) the pending change in the nesting BeanContext property value. Returning false will cause setBeanContext to throw PropertyVetoException.

Parameters:
newValue - the new value that has been requested for the BeanContext property
Returns:
true if the change operation is to be vetoed

releaseBeanContextResources

protected void releaseBeanContextResources()
This method may be overridden by subclasses to provide their own release behaviors. When invoked any resources held by this instance obtained from its current BeanContext property should be released since the object is no longer nested within that BeanContext.


initializeBeanContextResources

protected void initializeBeanContextResources()
This method may be overridden by subclasses to provide their own initialization behaviors. When invoked any resources requried by the BeanContextChild should be obtained from the current BeanContext.
