ServiceType

public ServiceType()
Deprecated. 
Method Detail

displayName

protected String displayName()
Deprecated. 
Default human-presentable name of the service type. In the default implementation, taken from the bean descriptor.

Returns:
initial value of the human-presentable name
See Also:
FeatureDescriptor.getDisplayName()

createClone

public final ServiceType createClone()
Deprecated. Service instance files should instead be copied in order to clone them.

Method that creates a cloned instance of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to implement the Cloneable interface, in such case the clone method is called as a result of calling this method. If the subclass does not implement Cloneable, it is serialized and deserialized, thus new instance created.

Returns:
new instance
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if something goes wrong, but should not happen

clone

protected Object clone()
                throws CloneNotSupportedException
Deprecated. Service instance files should instead be copied in order to clone them.

Correctly implements the clone operation on this object. In order to work really correctly, the subclass has to implement the Cloneable interface.

Returns:
a new cloned instance that does not have any listeners
Throws:
CloneNotSupportedException

setName

public void setName(String name)
Deprecated. 
Set the name of the service type. Usually it suffices to override displayName(), or just to provide a BeanDescriptor for the class.

Parameters:
name - the new human-presentable name

getName

public String getName()
Deprecated. 
Get the name of the service type. The default value is given by displayName().

Returns:
a human-presentable name for the service type

getHelpCtx

public abstract HelpCtx getHelpCtx()
Deprecated. 
Get context help for this service type.

Specified by:
getHelpCtx in interface HelpCtx.Provider
Returns:
context help

addPropertyChangeListener

public final void addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener l)
Deprecated. 
Add a property change listener.

Parameters:
l - the listener to add

removePropertyChangeListener

public final void removePropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener l)
Deprecated. 
Remove a property change listener.

Parameters:
l - the listener to remove

firePropertyChange

protected final void firePropertyChange(String name,
                                        Object o,
                                        Object n)
Deprecated. 
Fire information about change of a property in the service type.

Parameters:
name - name of the property
o - old value
n - new value
