Class ServiceManager

  • public final class ServiceManager
    extends Object
    The ServiceManager provides static methods to lookup JNLP services. This class is final and cannot be instantiated.

    Requests are delegated to a ServiceManagerStub object. This object must be set by the JNLP Client on startup using the setServiceManagerStub method.

        Sets the object that all lookup and getServiceNames requests are delegated to. The setServiceManagerStub call is ignored if the stub has already been set.

        This method should be called exactly once by the JNLP Client, and never be called by a launched application.
