abstract public class: LifecycleFactory [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:

LifecycleFactory is a factory object that creates (if needed) and returns Lifecycle instances. Implementations of JavaServer Faces must provide at least a default implementation of Lifecycle . Advanced implementations (or external third party libraries) MAY provide additional Lifecycle implementations (keyed by lifecycle identifiers) for performing different types of request processing on a per-request basis.

There must be one LifecycleFactory instance per web application that is utilizing JavaServer Faces. This instance can be acquired, in a portable manner, by calling:

  LifecycleFactory factory = (LifecycleFactory)
Field Summary
public static final  String DEFAULT_LIFECYCLE   

The lifecycle identifier for the default Lifecycle instance for this JavaServer Faces implementation.

Method from javax.faces.lifecycle.LifecycleFactory Summary:
addLifecycle,   getLifecycle,   getLifecycleIds,   getWrapped
Methods from java.lang.Object:
clone,   equals,   finalize,   getClass,   hashCode,   notify,   notifyAll,   toString,   wait,   wait,   wait
Method from javax.faces.lifecycle.LifecycleFactory Detail:
 abstract public  void addLifecycle(String lifecycleId,
    Lifecycle lifecycle)

    Register a new Lifecycle instance, associated with the specified lifecycleId, to be supported by this LifecycleFactory. This method may be called at any time, and makes the corresponding Lifecycle instance available throughout the remaining lifetime of this web application.

 abstract public Lifecycle getLifecycle(String lifecycleId)

    Create (if needed) and return a Lifecycle instance for the specified lifecycle identifier. The set of available lifecycle identifiers is available via the getLifecycleIds() method.

    Each call to getLifecycle() for the same lifecycleId, from within the same web application, must return the same Lifecycle instance.

 abstract public Iterator<String> getLifecycleIds()

    Return an Iterator over the set of lifecycle identifiers supported by this factory. This set must include the value specified by LifecycleFactory.DEFAULT_LIFECYCLE.

 public LifecycleFactory getWrapped() 

    If this factory has been decorated, the implementation doing the decorating may override this method to provide access to the implementation being wrapped. A default implementation is provided that returns null.
