javax.management.openmbean
Interface OpenMBeanOperationInfo

All Known Implementing Classes:
OpenMBeanOperationInfoSupport

public interface OpenMBeanOperationInfo

Describes an operation of an Open MBean.

This interface declares the same methods as the class MBeanOperationInfo. A class implementing this interface (typically OpenMBeanOperationInfoSupport) should extend MBeanOperationInfo.

The getSignature() method should return at runtime an array of instances of a subclass of MBeanParameterInfo which implements the OpenMBeanParameterInfo interface (typically OpenMBeanParameterInfoSupport).

Since:
1.5

Method Summary
 boolean equals(Object obj)
          Compares the specified obj parameter with this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance for equality.
 String getDescription()
          Returns a human readable description of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 int getImpact()
          Returns an int constant qualifying the impact of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 String getName()
          Returns the name of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 OpenType<?> getReturnOpenType()
          Returns the open type of the values returned by the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 String getReturnType()
          Returns the fully qualified Java class name of the values returned by the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 MBeanParameterInfo[] getSignature()
          Returns an array of OpenMBeanParameterInfo instances describing each parameter in the signature of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 int hashCode()
          Returns the hash code value for this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 String toString()
          Returns a string representation of this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
 

Method Detail

getDescription

String getDescription()
Returns a human readable description of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.

Returns:
the description.

getName

String getName()
Returns the name of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.

Returns:
the name.

getSignature

MBeanParameterInfo[] getSignature()
Returns an array of OpenMBeanParameterInfo instances describing each parameter in the signature of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance. Each instance in the returned array should actually be a subclass of MBeanParameterInfo which implements the OpenMBeanParameterInfo interface (typically OpenMBeanParameterInfoSupport).

Returns:
the signature.

getImpact

int getImpact()
Returns an int constant qualifying the impact of the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance. The returned constant is one of MBeanOperationInfo.INFO, MBeanOperationInfo.ACTION, MBeanOperationInfo.ACTION_INFO, or MBeanOperationInfo.UNKNOWN.

Returns:
the impact code.

getReturnType

String getReturnType()
Returns the fully qualified Java class name of the values returned by the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance. This method should return the same value as a call to getReturnOpenType().getClassName().

Returns:
the return type.

getReturnOpenType

OpenType<?> getReturnOpenType()
Returns the open type of the values returned by the operation described by this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.

Returns:
the return type.

equals

boolean equals(Object obj)
Compares the specified obj parameter with this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance for equality.

Returns true if and only if all of the following statements are true:

This ensures that this equals method works properly for obj parameters which are different implementations of the OpenMBeanOperationInfo interface.
 

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - the object to be compared for equality with this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance;
Returns:
true if the specified object is equal to this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.
See Also:
Object.hashCode(), Hashtable

hashCode

int hashCode()
Returns the hash code value for this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.

The hash code of an OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance is the sum of the hash codes of all elements of information used in equals comparisons (ie: its name, return open type, impact and signature, where the signature hashCode is calculated by a call to java.util.Arrays.asList(this.getSignature).hashCode()).

This ensures that t1.equals(t2) implies that t1.hashCode()==t2.hashCode() for any two OpenMBeanOperationInfo instances t1 and t2, as required by the general contract of the method Object.hashCode().

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
the hash code value for this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance
See Also:
Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Hashtable

toString

String toString()
Returns a string representation of this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance.

The string representation consists of the name of this class (ie javax.management.openmbean.OpenMBeanOperationInfo), and the name, signature, return open type and impact of the described operation.

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
a string representation of this OpenMBeanOperationInfo instance
