All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, DescriptorAccess, DescriptorRead

public class ModelMBeanAttributeInfo
extends MBeanAttributeInfo
implements DescriptorAccess

The ModelMBeanAttributeInfo object describes an attribute of the ModelMBean. It is a subclass of MBeanAttributeInfo with the addition of an associated Descriptor and an implementation of the DescriptorAccess interface.

The fields in the descriptor are defined, but not limited to, the following:

 name           : attribute name
 descriptorType : must be "attribute"
 value          : current value for attribute
 default        : default value for attribute
 displayName    : name of attribute to be used in displays
 getMethod      : name of operation descriptor for get method
 setMethod      : name of operation descriptor for set method
 protocolMap    : object which implements the Descriptor interface: mappings
                  must be appropriate for the attribute
                  and entries can be updated or augmented at runtime.
 persistPolicy  : OnUpdate|OnTimer|NoMoreOftenThan|OnUnregister|Always|Never
 persistPeriod  : seconds - frequency of persist cycle. Used when persistPolicy
                  is "OnTimer" or "NoMoreOftenThan".
 currencyTimeLimit : how long value is valid, <0 never, =0 always, >0 seconds
 lastUpdatedTimeStamp : when value was set
 visibility     : 1-4 where 1: always visible, 4: rarely visible
 presentationString : xml formatted string to allow presentation of data
 
The default descriptor contains the name, descriptorType and displayName fields. The default value of the name and displayName fields is the name of the attribute.

Note: because of inconsistencies in previous versions of this specification, it is recommended not to use negative or zero values for currencyTimeLimit. To indicate that a cached value is never valid, omit the currencyTimeLimit field. To indicate that it is always valid, use a very large number for this field.

The serialVersionUID of this class is 6181543027787327345L.

ModelMBeanAttributeInfo

public ModelMBeanAttributeInfo(String name,
                               String description,
                               Method getter,

                        throws IntrospectionException
Constructs a ModelMBeanAttributeInfo object with a default descriptor. The Descriptor of the constructed object will include fields contributed by any annotations on the Method objects that contain the DescriptorKey meta-annotation.

Parameters:
name - The name of the attribute.
description - A human readable description of the attribute. Optional.
getter - The method used for reading the attribute value. May be null if the property is write-only.
setter - The method used for writing the attribute value. May be null if the attribute is read-only.
Throws:
IntrospectionException - There is a consistency problem in the definition of this attribute.

ModelMBeanAttributeInfo

public ModelMBeanAttributeInfo(String name,
                               String description,
                               Method getter,
                               Method setter,
                               Descriptor descriptor)
                        throws IntrospectionException
Constructs a ModelMBeanAttributeInfo object. The Descriptor of the constructed object will include fields contributed by any annotations on the Method objects that contain the DescriptorKey meta-annotation.

Parameters:
name - The name of the attribute.
description - A human readable description of the attribute. Optional.
getter - The method used for reading the attribute value. May be null if the property is write-only.
setter - The method used for writing the attribute value. May be null if the attribute is read-only.
descriptor - An instance of Descriptor containing the appropriate metadata for this instance of the Attribute. If it is null, then a default descriptor will be created. If the descriptor does not contain all the following fields, the missing ones are added with their default values: displayName, name, descriptorType.
Throws:
IntrospectionException - There is a consistency problem in the definition of this attribute.
RuntimeOperationsException - Wraps an IllegalArgumentException. The descriptor is invalid, or descriptor field "name" is present but not equal to name parameter, or descriptor field "descriptorType" is present but not equal to "attribute".

Method Detail

getDescriptor

public Descriptor getDescriptor()
Gets a copy of the associated Descriptor for the ModelMBeanAttributeInfo.

Specified by:
getDescriptor in interface DescriptorRead
