Interface ScopeType

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface ScopeType

Framework applications use the concept of scope types to generate a set of managed storage repositories. The idea is that data being transported, retreived, generated, etc. can be retained for different periods of time; i.e., there is a "scope" associated with all data and requests. Two examples of a scope type are "user" and "request". The standard set of scope types are defined in the DefaultScopeType class. Warning: any class implementing this interface needs to ensure that the names of the scope types don't conflict with the names implemented by the DefaultScopeType class; for this reason, we strongly recommend that anyone wishing to add functionality by introducing new scope types do so be extending the DefaultScopeType class rather than by implementing this interface.
