Class DefaultHandle

  extended by org.openide.nodes.DefaultHandle
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Node.Handle

public final class DefaultHandle
extends Object
implements Node.Handle

Simple implementation of Node.Handle. When created by createHandle(org.openide.nodes.Node) it looks for the parent of the node and stores the node's name. When getNode() is then called, it tries to restore the parent and then to walk down to the child.

Note that if most nodes use DefaultHandle, this may walk up to the root recursively. Otherwise, some other sort of handle may provide the termination case.
