- Type Parameters:
T- The type of the object attached to the receive operation
- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface NotificationHandler<T>
The SCTP channels defined in this package allow a notification handler to be specified to consume notifications from the SCTP stack. When a notification is received the handleNotification method of the handler is invoked to handle that notification.
Additionally, an attachment object can be attached to the
operation to provide context when consuming the notification. The
attachment is important for cases where a state-less
NotificationHandler is used to consume the result of many
Handler implementations are encouraged to extend the
AbstractNotificationHandler class which implements this interface and
provide notification specific methods. However, an API should generally use
this handler interface as the type for parameters, return type, etc. rather
than the abstract class.
