- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface NotificationHandler<T>A handler for consuming notifications from the SCTP stack.
The SCTP channels defined in this package allow a notification handler to be specified to consume notifications from the SCTP stack. When a notification is received the handleNotification method of the handler is invoked to handle that notification.
Additionally, an attachment object can be attached to the
receiveoperation to provide context when consuming the notification. The attachment is important for cases where a state-less
NotificationHandleris used to consume the result of many
Handler implementations are encouraged to extend the
AbstractNotificationHandlerclass which implements this interface and provide notification specific methods. However, an API should generally use this handler interface as the type for parameters, return type, etc. rather than the abstract class.
