Interface PolicyReaderMBean

All Superinterfaces:
weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorBean, weblogic.descriptor.SettableBean,
All Known Subinterfaces:

public interface PolicyReaderMBean
extends, weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorBean

Provides a set of methods for reading data about policies. An Authorization-provider MBean can optionally extend this MBean. The WebLogic Server Administration Console detects when an Authorization provider extends this MBean and automatically provides a GUI for using these methods.

Deprecation of MBeanHome and Type-Safe Interfaces

In addition to being used as a base class that provides functionality to security provider MBeans, JMX applications can use this class directly as a type-safe interface. When used as a type-safe interface, a JMX application imports this class and accesses it through As of 9.0, the MBeanHome interface and all type-safe interfaces for WebLogic Server MBeans are deprecated. Instead, JMX applications that interact with WebLogic Server MBeans should use standard JMX design patterns in which clients use the interface to discover MBeans, attributes, and attribute types at runtime.
