Activation makes use of special identifiers to denote remote objects that can be activated over time. An activation identifier (an instance of the class ActivationID) contains several pieces of information needed for activating an object:
  • a remote reference to the object's activator (a RemoteRef instance), and
  • a unique identifier (a UID instance) for the object.

An activation identifier for an object can be obtained by registering an object with the activation system. Registration is accomplished in a few ways:

  • via the Activatable.register method
  • via the first Activatable constructor (that takes three arguments and both registers and exports the object, and
  • via the first Activatable.exportObject method that takes the activation descriptor, object and port as arguments; this method both registers and exports the object.

    • ActivationID

      public ActivationID​(Activator activator)
      Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
      The constructor for ActivationID takes a single argument, activator, that specifies a remote reference to the activator responsible for activating the object associated with this identifier. An instance of ActivationID is globally unique.
      Parameters:
      activator - reference to the activator responsible for activating the object
      Throws:
      UnsupportedOperationException - if and only if activation is not supported by this implementation

    • activate

      public Remote activate​(boolean force) throws ActivationException, UnknownObjectException, RemoteException
      Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
      Activate the object for this id.
      Parameters:
      force - if true, forces the activator to contact the group when activating the object (instead of returning a cached reference); if false, returning a cached value is acceptable.
      Returns:
      the reference to the active remote object
      Throws:
      ActivationException - if activation fails
      UnknownObjectException - if the object is unknown
      RemoteException - if remote call fails

    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
      Returns a hashcode for the activation id. Two identifiers that refer to the same remote object will have the same hash code.
      Overrides:
      hashCode in class Object
      Returns:
      a hash code value for this object.
      Since:

    • equals

      public boolean equals​(Object obj)
      Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
      Compares two activation ids for content equality. Returns true if both of the following conditions are true: 1) the unique identifiers equivalent (by content), and 2) the activator specified in each identifier refers to the same remote object.
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      obj - the Object to compare with
      Returns:
      true if these Objects are equal; false otherwise.
