- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface IndirectActorProducerThis interface defines a class of actor creation strategies deviating from the usual default of just reflectively instantiating the
Actorsubclass. It can be used to allow a dependency injection framework to determine the actual actor class and how it shall be instantiated.
All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
java.lang.Class<? extends Actor>
actorClass()This method is used by
Propsto determine the type of actor which will be created.
produce()This factory method must produce a fresh actor instance upon each invocation.
Actor produce()This factory method must produce a fresh actor instance upon each invocation. It is not permitted to return the same instance more than once.
java.lang.Class<? extends Actor> actorClass()This method is used by
Propsto determine the type of actor which will be created. This means that an instance of this
IndirectActorProducerwill be created in order to call this method during any call to
Props.actorClass(); it should be noted that such calls may performed during actor set-up before the actual actor’s instantiation, and that the instance created for calling
actorClassis not necessarily reused later to produce the actor.
