implements BeanContext, Serializable, PropertyChangeListener, VetoableChangeListener

This helper class provides a utility implementation of the java.beans.beancontext.BeanContext interface.

Since this class directly implements the BeanContext interface, the class can, and is intended to be used either by subclassing this implementation, or via ad-hoc delegation of an instance of this class from another.
