Method Detail

handleEvent

public void handleEvent(QueueElementIF elem)
                 throws EventHandlerException
Handle the event corresponding to the given QueueElementIF. This method is invoked by the system when a single event is pending for the event handler.
Throws:
EventHandlerException - The application may throw an exception to indicate an error condition during event processing.

handleEvents

public void handleEvents(QueueElementIF[] elemarr)
                  throws EventHandlerException
Handle the events corresponding to the given QueueElementIF array. This method is invoked when multiple events are pending for the event handler. The application may reorder, filter, or drop these events if it wishes to do so.
Throws:
EventHandlerException - The application may throw an exception to indicate an error condition during event processing.

init

public void init(ConfigDataIF config)
          throws java.lang.Exception
Called when an event handler is initialized. This method should perform any initialization operations as required by the application.
Parameters:
config - The set of configuration parameters for the stage.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - The EventHandler can indicate an error to the runtime during initialization by throwing an Exception.

destroy

public void destroy()
             throws java.lang.Exception
