Package javax.jdo.spi

This package contains the interfaces and classes used by JDO implementations.


Interface Summary
PersistenceCapable A class that can be managed by a JDO implementation must implement this interface.
PersistenceCapable.ObjectIdFieldConsumer This interface is used to store fields from the Object id instance.
PersistenceCapable.ObjectIdFieldManager This interface is a convenience interface that allows an instance to implement both ObjectIdFieldSupplier and ObjectIdFieldConsumer.
PersistenceCapable.ObjectIdFieldSupplier This interface is used to provide fields to the Object id instance.
RegisterClassListener A "RegisterClassEvent" event gets fired whenever a persistence-capable class is loaded and gets registered with the JDOImplHelper.
StateManager This interface is the point of contact between managed instances of PersistenceCapable classes and the JDO implementation.

Class Summary
I18NHelper Helper class for constructing messages from bundles.
JDOImplHelper This class is a helper class for JDO implementations.
JDOPermission The JDOPermission class is for operations that are reserved for JDO implementations and should not be called by other code.
RegisterClassEvent A RegisterClassEvent event gets delivered whenever a persistence-capable class registers itself with the JDOImplHelper.

Package javax.jdo.spi Description

This package contains the interfaces and classes used by JDO implementations.

JDO defines interfaces and classes to be used by application programmers when using classes whose instances are to be stored in persistent storage (persistence-capable classes), and specifies the contracts between suppliers of persistence-capable classes and the runtime environment (which is part of the JDO implementation).

The PersistenceCapable interface is implemented by all classes whose instances are to be made persistent. The implementation might be done by a combination of techniques, as determined by the JDO vendor:

The StateManager interface is the implementation's contact point with the PersistenceCapable instances. It defines methods that are called by the PersistenceCapable instances to implement the required PersistenceCapable behavior for persistent and transactional instances.

The JDOPermission class is used to manage security controls on JDO implementations.

The RegisterClassEvent class and RegisterClassListener interface are used by JDO implementations that need access to metadata of PersistenceCapable classes.

The JDOImplHelper class contains helper methods for JDO implementations.
