- Functional Interface:
- This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.
@FunctionalInterface public interface GuardedInvocationTransformerInterface for objects that are used to transform one guarded invocation into another one. Typical usage is for implementing
GuardedInvocation filter(GuardedInvocation inv, LinkRequest linkRequest, LinkerServices linkerServices)Given a guarded invocation, return either the same or potentially different guarded invocation.
inv- the original guarded invocation.
linkRequest- the link request for which the invocation was generated (usually by some linker).
linkerServices- the linker services that can be used during creation of a new invocation.
- either the passed guarded invocation or a different one, with
the difference usually determined based on information in the link
request and the differing invocation created with the assistance of the
linker services. Whether or not
nullis an accepted return value is dependent on the user of the filter.
NullPointerException- is allowed to be thrown by implementations if any of the passed arguments is null.
