Package Summary  Overview Summary

class:RelationTypeSupport [NONE]

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, RelationType

    public class RelationTypeSupport
    extends Object
    implements RelationType
    A RelationTypeSupport object implements the RelationType interface.

    It represents a relation type, providing role information for each role expected to be supported in every relation of that type.

    A relation type includes a relation type name and a list of role infos (represented by RoleInfo objects).

    A relation type has to be declared in the Relation Service:

    - either using the createRelationType() method, where a RelationTypeSupport object will be created and kept in the Relation Service

    - either using the addRelationType() method where the user has to create an object implementing the RelationType interface, and this object will be used as representing a relation type in the Relation Service.

    The serialVersionUID of this class is 4611072955724144607L.
