OSGi™ Service Platform
Release 4

Class ApplicationServiceEvent

  extended byjava.util.EventObject
      extended byorg.osgi.framework.ServiceEvent
          extended byorg.osgi.application.ApplicationServiceEvent
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class ApplicationServiceEvent
extends ServiceEvent

An event from the Framework describing a service lifecycle change.

ApplicationServiceEvent objects are delivered to a ApplicationServiceListener objects when a change occurs in this service's lifecycle. The delivery of an ApplicationServiceEvent is always triggered by a ServiceEvent. ApplicationServiceEvent extends the content of ServiceEvent with the service object the event is referring to as applications has no means to find the corresponding service object for a ServiceReference. A type code is used to identify the event type for future extendability. The available type codes are defined in ServiceEvent.

OSGi Alliance reserves the right to extend the set of types.
