Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescription
configureA callback method called by the JAX-RS runtime during the application deployment to register provider instances or classes in a
runtime configurationscope of a particular
resource or sub-resource method; i.e. the providers that should be dynamically bound to the method.
The registered provider instances or classes are expected to be implementing one or more of the following interfaces:
A provider instance or class that does not implement any of the interfaces above may be ignored by the JAX-RS implementation. In such case a
warningmessage must be logged. JAX-RS implementations may support additional provider contracts that can be registered using a dynamic feature concept.
Conceptually, this callback method is called during a
resource or sub-resource methoddiscovery phase (typically once per each discovered resource or sub-resource method) to register provider instances or classes in a
configurationscope of each particular method identified by the supplied
resource information. The responsibility of the feature is to properly update the supplied
resourceInfo- resource class and method information.
