The JNDI framework allows for object implementations to
be loaded in dynamically via object factories.
For example, when looking up a printer bound in the name space,
if the print service binds printer names to References, the printer
Reference could be used to create a printer object, so that
the caller of lookup can directly operate on the printer object
after the lookup. An ObjectFactory is responsible for creating
objects of a specific type. JNDI uses a default policy for using
and loading object factories. You can override this default policy
NamingManager.setObjectFactoryBuilder() with an ObjectFactoryBuilder,
which contains the program-defined way of creating/loading
ObjectFactoryBuilder implementation must implement this
interface that for creating object factories.
Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescription
(Object obj, Hashtable<?, ?> environment)Creates a new object factory using the environment supplied.
(Object obj, Hashtable<?, ?> environment)throws NamingExceptionCreates a new object factory using the environment supplied.
The environment parameter is owned by the caller. The implementation will not modify the object or keep a reference to it, although it may keep a reference to a clone or copy.
obj- The possibly null object for which to create a factory.
environment- Environment to use when creating the factory. Can be null.
- A non-null new instance of an ObjectFactory.
NamingException- If an object factory cannot be created.
