Constructor Detail

MBeanOperationInfo

public MBeanOperationInfo(String description,
                          Method method)
Constructs an MBeanOperationInfo object. The Descriptor of the constructed object will include fields contributed by any annotations on the Method object that contain the DescriptorKey meta-annotation.

Parameters:
method - The java.lang.reflect.Method object describing the MBean operation.
description - A human readable description of the operation.

MBeanOperationInfo

public MBeanOperationInfo(String name,
                          String description,
                          MBeanParameterInfo[] signature,
                          String type,
                          int impact)
Constructs an MBeanOperationInfo object.

Parameters:
name - The name of the method.
description - A human readable description of the operation.
signature - MBeanParameterInfo objects describing the parameters(arguments) of the method. This may be null with the same effect as a zero-length array.
type - The type of the method's return value.
impact - The impact of the method, one of INFO, ACTION, ACTION_INFO, UNKNOWN.

MBeanOperationInfo

public MBeanOperationInfo(String name,
                          String description,
                          MBeanParameterInfo[] signature,
                          String type,
                          int impact,
                          Descriptor descriptor)
Constructs an MBeanOperationInfo object.

Parameters:
name - The name of the method.
description - A human readable description of the operation.
signature - MBeanParameterInfo objects describing the parameters(arguments) of the method. This may be null with the same effect as a zero-length array.
type - The type of the method's return value.
impact - The impact of the method, one of INFO, ACTION, ACTION_INFO, UNKNOWN.
descriptor - The descriptor for the operation. This may be null which is equivalent to an empty descriptor.

Method Detail

clone

public Object clone()

Returns a shallow clone of this instance. The clone is obtained by simply calling super.clone(), thus calling the default native shallow cloning mechanism implemented by Object.clone(). No deeper cloning of any internal field is made.

Since this class is immutable, cloning is chiefly of interest to subclasses.

Overrides:
clone in class Object
Returns:
a clone of this instance.
See Also:
Cloneable

getReturnType

public String getReturnType()
Returns the type of the method's return value.

Returns:
the return type.

getSignature

public MBeanParameterInfo[] getSignature()

Returns the list of parameters for this operation. Each parameter is described by an MBeanParameterInfo object.

The returned array is a shallow copy of the internal array, which means that it is a copy of the internal array of references to the MBeanParameterInfo objects but that each referenced MBeanParameterInfo object is not copied.

Returns:
An array of MBeanParameterInfo objects.

getImpact

public int getImpact()
Returns the impact of the method, one of INFO, ACTION, ACTION_INFO, UNKNOWN.

Returns:
the impact code.

toString

public String toString()
Description copied from class: Object
Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

 getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
 

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
a string representation of the object.

equals

public boolean equals(Object o)
Compare this MBeanOperationInfo to another.

Overrides:
equals in class MBeanFeatureInfo
Parameters:
o - the object to compare to.
Returns:
true if and only if o is an MBeanOperationInfo such that its MBeanFeatureInfo.getName(), getReturnType(), MBeanFeatureInfo.getDescription(), getImpact(), MBeanFeatureInfo.getDescriptor() and getSignature() values are equal (not necessarily identical) to those of this MBeanConstructorInfo. Two signature arrays are equal if their elements are pairwise equal.

Object.hashCode(), Hashtable

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Description copied from class: Object
Returns a hash code value for the object. This method is supported for the benefit of hashtables such as those provided by java.util.Hashtable.

The general contract of hashCode is:

As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class Object does return distinct integers for distinct objects. (This is typically implemented by converting the internal address of the object into an integer, but this implementation technique is not required by the JavaTM programming language.)

Overrides:
hashCode in class MBeanFeatureInfo
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.

Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Hashtable
