Class WeakInvalidationListener

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    InvalidationListener, WeakListener

    public final class WeakInvalidationListener
    extends Object
    implements InvalidationListener, WeakListener
    A WeakInvalidationListener can be used, if an Observable should only maintain a weak reference to the listener. This helps to avoid memory leaks, that can occur if observers are not unregistered from observed objects after use.

    WeakInvalidationListener are created by passing in the original InvalidationListener. The WeakInvalidationListener should then be registered to listen for changes of the observed object.

    Note: You have to keep a reference to the InvalidationListener, that was passed in as long as it is in use, otherwise it will be garbage collected to soon.
