Class MBeanProxyFactoryBean

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Advice, Interceptor, MethodInterceptor, Aware, BeanClassLoaderAware, DisposableBean, FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>, InitializingBean

    public class MBeanProxyFactoryBean
    extends MBeanClientInterceptor
    implements FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>, BeanClassLoaderAware, InitializingBean
    Creates a proxy to a managed resource running either locally or remotely. The "proxyInterface" property defines the interface that the generated proxy is supposed to implement. This interface should define methods and properties that correspond to operations and attributes in the management interface of the resource you wish to proxy.

    There is no need for the managed resource to implement the proxy interface, although you may find it convenient to do. It is not required that every operation and attribute in the management interface is matched by a corresponding property or method in the proxy interface.

    Attempting to invoke or access any method or property on the proxy interface that does not correspond to the management interface will lead to an InvalidInvocationException.

      • setProxyInterface

        public void setProxyInterface(java.lang.Class<?> proxyInterface)
        Set the interface that the generated proxy will implement.

        This will usually be a management interface that matches the target MBean, exposing bean property setters and getters for MBean attributes and conventional Java methods for MBean operations.

      • getObject

        public java.lang.Object getObject()
        Description copied from interface: FactoryBean
        Return an instance (possibly shared or independent) of the object managed by this factory.

        As with a BeanFactory, this allows support for both the Singleton and Prototype design pattern.

        If this FactoryBean is not fully initialized yet at the time of the call (for example because it is involved in a circular reference), throw a corresponding FactoryBeanNotInitializedException.

        As of Spring 2.0, FactoryBeans are allowed to return null objects. The factory will consider this as normal value to be used; it will not throw a FactoryBeanNotInitializedException in this case anymore. FactoryBean implementations are encouraged to throw FactoryBeanNotInitializedException themselves now, as appropriate.

        Specified by:
        getObject in interface FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>
        an instance of the bean (can be null)

      • getObjectType

        public java.lang.Class<?> getObjectType()
        Description copied from interface: FactoryBean
        Return the type of object that this FactoryBean creates, or null if not known in advance.

        This allows one to check for specific types of beans without instantiating objects, for example on autowiring.

        In the case of implementations that are creating a singleton object, this method should try to avoid singleton creation as far as possible; it should rather estimate the type in advance. For prototypes, returning a meaningful type here is advisable too.

        This method can be called before this FactoryBean has been fully initialized. It must not rely on state created during initialization; of course, it can still use such state if available.

        NOTE: Autowiring will simply ignore FactoryBeans that return null here. Therefore it is highly recommended to implement this method properly, using the current state of the FactoryBean.

        Specified by:
        getObjectType in interface FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>
        the type of object that this FactoryBean creates, or null if not known at the time of the call

      • isSingleton

        public boolean isSingleton()
        Description copied from interface: FactoryBean
        Is the object managed by this factory a singleton? That is, will FactoryBean.getObject() always return the same object (a reference that can be cached)?

        NOTE: If a FactoryBean indicates to hold a singleton object, the object returned from getObject() might get cached by the owning BeanFactory. Hence, do not return true unless the FactoryBean always exposes the same reference.

        The singleton status of the FactoryBean itself will generally be provided by the owning BeanFactory; usually, it has to be defined as singleton there.

        NOTE: This method returning false does not necessarily indicate that returned objects are independent instances. An implementation of the extended SmartFactoryBean interface may explicitly indicate independent instances through its SmartFactoryBean.isPrototype() method. Plain FactoryBean implementations which do not implement this extended interface are simply assumed to always return independent instances if the isSingleton() implementation returns false.

        The default implementation returns true, since a FactoryBean typically manages a singleton instance.

        Specified by:
        isSingleton in interface FactoryBean<java.lang.Object>
        whether the exposed object is a singleton
