public interface Lifecycle

Common interface for component life cycle methods. Catalina components may, but are not required to, implement this interface (as well as the appropriate interface(s) for the functionality they support) in order to provide a consistent mechanism to start and stop the component.

Method Detail

addLifecycleListener

void addLifecycleListener(LifecycleListener listener)
Add a LifecycleEvent listener to this component.

Parameters:
listener - The listener to add

findLifecycleListeners

LifecycleListener[] findLifecycleListeners()
Get the lifecycle listeners associated with this lifecycle. If this Lifecycle has no listeners registered, a zero-length array is returned.


removeLifecycleListener

void removeLifecycleListener(LifecycleListener listener)
Remove a LifecycleEvent listener from this component.

Parameters:
listener - The listener to remove

start

void start()
           throws LifecycleException
Prepare for the beginning of active use of the public methods of this component. This method should be called before any of the public methods of this component are utilized. It should also send a LifecycleEvent of type START_EVENT to any registered listeners.

Throws:
LifecycleException - if this component detects a fatal error that prevents this component from being used

stop

void stop()
          throws LifecycleException
Gracefully terminate the active use of the public methods of this component. This method should be the last one called on a given instance of this component. It should also send a LifecycleEvent of type STOP_EVENT to any registered listeners.

Throws:
LifecycleException - if this component detects a fatal error that needs to be reported
