Interface EndpointResolver


public interface EndpointResolver

Implementations of this interface are responsible for mapping between abstract and concrete endpoint references, and/or renewing stale references.

An underlying mechanism in the style of the OGSA WS-Naming specification is assumed, where an EPR maybe be fully abstract, or concrete but with sufficient information embedded to enable its renewal if necessary.


Method Summary
 EndpointReferenceType mint(EndpointReferenceType physical)
          Mint a new abstract EPR for a given concrete EPR
 EndpointReferenceType mint(javax.xml.namespace.QName serviceName)
          Mint a new abstract EPR for a given service name.
 EndpointReferenceType renew(EndpointReferenceType logical, EndpointReferenceType physical)
          Force a fresh resolution of the given abstract EPR, discarding any previously cached reference.
 EndpointReferenceType resolve(EndpointReferenceType logical)
          Retrieve a concrete EPR corresponding to the given abstract EPR, returning a cached reference if already resolved.
 

Method Detail

resolve

EndpointReferenceType resolve(EndpointReferenceType logical)
Retrieve a concrete EPR corresponding to the given abstract EPR, returning a cached reference if already resolved.

Parameters:
logical - the abstract EPR to resolve
Returns:
the resolved concrete EPR if appropriate, null otherwise

renew

EndpointReferenceType renew(EndpointReferenceType logical,
                            EndpointReferenceType physical)
Force a fresh resolution of the given abstract EPR, discarding any previously cached reference.

Parameters:
logical - the previously resolved abstract EPR
physical - the concrete EPR to refresh
Returns:
the renewed concrete EPR if appropriate, null otherwise

mint

EndpointReferenceType mint(javax.xml.namespace.QName serviceName)
Mint a new abstract EPR for a given service name.

Parameters:
serviceName -
Returns:
the newly minted EPR if appropriate, null otherwise

mint

EndpointReferenceType mint(EndpointReferenceType physical)
Mint a new abstract EPR for a given concrete EPR

Parameters:
physical -
Returns:
the newly minted EPR if appropriate, null otherwise
