javax.security.auth.message
Interface MessageInfo


public interface MessageInfo

A message processing runtime uses this interface to pass messages and message processing state to authentication contexts for processing by authentication modules.

This interface encapsulates a request message object and a response message object for a message exchange. This interface may also be used to associate additional context in the form of key/value pairs, with the encapsulated messages.

Every implementation of this interface should provide a zero argument constructor, and a constructor which takes a single Map argument. Additional constructors may also be provided.
