Field Detail

EVENT_TOPIC

static final java.lang.String EVENT_TOPIC
Service registration property specifying the Event topics of interest to an Event Handler service.

Event handlers SHOULD be registered with this property. Each value of this property is a string that describe the topics in which the handler is interested. An asterisk ('*') may be used as a trailing wildcard. Event Handlers which do not have a value for this property must not receive events. More precisely, the value of each string must conform to the following grammar:

  topic-description := '*' | topic ( '/*' )?
  topic := token ( '/' token )*
 

The value of this property must be of type String, String[], or Collection<String>.

Event, Constant Field Values

EVENT_FILTER

static final java.lang.String EVENT_FILTER
Service Registration property specifying a filter to further select Event s of interest to an Event Handler service.

Event handlers MAY be registered with this property. The value of this property is a string containing an LDAP-style filter specification. Any of the event's properties may be used in the filter expression. Each event handler is notified for any event which belongs to the topics in which the handler has expressed an interest. If the event handler is also registered with this service property, then the properties of the event must also match the filter for the event to be delivered to the event handler.

If the filter syntax is invalid, then the Event Handler must be ignored and a warning should be logged.

The value of this property must be of type String.

Event, Filter, Constant Field Values

EVENT_DELIVERY

static final java.lang.String EVENT_DELIVERY
Service Registration property specifying the delivery qualities requested by an Event Handler service.

Event handlers MAY be registered with this property. Each value of this property is a string specifying a delivery quality for the Event handler.

The value of this property must be of type String, String[], or Collection<String>.

Since:
1.3
See Also:
DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED, DELIVERY_ASYNC_UNORDERED, Constant Field Values

DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED

static final java.lang.String DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED
Event Handler delivery quality value specifying the Event Handler requires asynchronously delivered events be delivered in order. Ordered delivery is the default for asynchronously delivered events.

This delivery quality value is mutually exclusive with DELIVERY_ASYNC_UNORDERED. However, if both this value and DELIVERY_ASYNC_UNORDERED are specified for an event handler, this value takes precedence.

Since:
1.3
See Also:
EVENT_DELIVERY, Constant Field Values

DELIVERY_ASYNC_UNORDERED

static final java.lang.String DELIVERY_ASYNC_UNORDERED
Event Handler delivery quality value specifying the Event Handler does not require asynchronously delivered events be delivered in order. This may allow an Event Admin implementation to optimize asynchronous event delivery by relaxing ordering requirements.

This delivery quality value is mutually exclusive with DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED. However, if both this value and DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED are specified for an event handler, DELIVERY_ASYNC_ORDERED takes precedence.

1.3
