public class Notification
extends EventObject

The Notification class represents a notification emitted by an MBean. It contains a reference to the source MBean: if the notification has been forwarded through the MBean server, and the original source of the notification was a reference to the emitting MBean object, then the MBean server replaces it by the MBean's ObjectName. If the listener has registered directly with the MBean, this is either the object name or a direct reference to the MBean.

It is strongly recommended that notification senders use the object name rather than a reference to the MBean object as the source.

1.5

Constructor Detail

Notification

public Notification(String type,
                    Object source,
                    long sequenceNumber)
Creates a Notification object. The notification timeStamp is set to the current date.

Parameters:
type - The notification type.
source - The notification source.
sequenceNumber - The notification sequence number within the source object.

Notification

                    Object source,
                    long sequenceNumber,
                    String message)
Creates a Notification object. The notification timeStamp is set to the current date.

Parameters:
type - The notification type.
source - The notification source.
sequenceNumber - The notification sequence number within the source object.
message - The detailed message.

Notification

                    Object source,
                    long sequenceNumber,
                    long timeStamp)

Notification

public Notification(String type,
                    Object source,
                    long sequenceNumber,
                    long timeStamp,

timeStamp - The notification emission date.
message - The detailed message.
Method Detail

setSource

public void setSource(Object source)
Sets the source.

Parameters:
source - the new source for this object.
See Also:
EventObject.getSource()

getSequenceNumber

public long getSequenceNumber()
Get the notification sequence number.

Returns:
The notification sequence number within the source object. It's a serial number identifying a particular instance of notification in the context of the notification source. The notification model does not assume that notifications will be received in the same order that they are sent. The sequence number helps listeners to sort received notifications.
See Also:
setSequenceNumber(long)

setSequenceNumber

public void setSequenceNumber(long sequenceNumber)
Set the notification sequence number.

Parameters:
sequenceNumber - The notification sequence number within the source object. It is a serial number identifying a particular instance of notification in the context of the notification source.
See Also:
getSequenceNumber()

getType

public String getType()
Get the notification type.

Returns:
The notification type. It's a string expressed in a dot notation similar to Java properties. An example of a notification type is network.alarm.router .

getTimeStamp

public long getTimeStamp()
Get the notification timestamp.

Returns:
The notification timestamp.
See Also:
setTimeStamp(long)

setTimeStamp

public void setTimeStamp(long timeStamp)
Set the notification timestamp.

Parameters:
timeStamp - The notification timestamp. It indicates when the notification was generated.
See Also:
getTimeStamp()

getMessage

public String getMessage()
Get the notification message.

Returns:
The message string of this notification object. It contains in a string, which could be the explanation of the notification for displaying to a user

getUserData

public Object getUserData()
Get the user data.

Returns:
The user data object. It is used for whatever data the notification source wishes to communicate to its consumers.
See Also:
setUserData(java.lang.Object)

setUserData

public void setUserData(Object userData)
Set the user data.

Parameters:
userData - The user data object. It is used for whatever data the notification source wishes to communicate to its consumers.
See Also:
getUserData()

toString

public String toString()
Returns a String representation of this notification.

Overrides:
toString in class EventObject
Returns:
A String representation of this notification.
