Enum Constant Detail

RELUCTANT

public static final ReferencePolicyOption RELUCTANT
The reluctant policy option is the default policy option for both static and dynamic reference policies. When a new target service for a reference becomes available, references having the reluctant policy option for the static policy or the dynamic policy with a unary cardinality will ignore the new target service. References having the dynamic policy with a multiple cardinality will bind the new target service.


GREEDY

public static final ReferencePolicyOption GREEDY
The greedy policy option is a valid policy option for both static and dynamic reference policies. When a new target service for a reference becomes available, references having the greedy policy option will bind the new target service.

Method Detail

values

public static ReferencePolicyOption[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (ReferencePolicyOption c : ReferencePolicyOption.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static ReferencePolicyOption valueOf(java.lang.String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Enum<ReferencePolicyOption>
