This package defines the service provider interface (SPI) of the Java Naming and Directory InterfaceTM (JNDI). JNDI provides naming and directory functionality to applications written in the Java programming language. It is designed to be independent of any specific naming or directory service implementation. Thus a variety of services--new, emerging, and already deployed ones--can be accessed in a common way.
The JNDI SPI provides the means for creating JNDI service providers, through which JNDI applications access different naming and directory services.
|DirObjectFactory||This interface represents a factory for creating an object given an object and attributes about the object.|
|DirStateFactory||This interface represents a factory for obtaining the state of an object and corresponding attributes for binding.|
|InitialContextFactory||This interface represents a factory that creates an initial context.|
|InitialContextFactoryBuilder||This interface represents a builder that creates initial context factories.|
|ObjectFactory||This interface represents a factory for creating an object.|
|ObjectFactoryBuilder||This interface represents a builder that creates object factories.|
|Resolver||This interface represents an "intermediate context" for name resolution.|
|StateFactory||This interface represents a factory for obtaining the state of an object for binding.|
|DirectoryManager||This class contains methods for supporting DirContext implementations.|
|DirStateFactory.Result||An object/attributes pair for returning the result of DirStateFactory.getStateToBind().|
|NamingManager||This class contains methods for creating context objects and objects referred to by location information in the naming or directory service.|
|ResolveResult||This class represents the result of resolution of a name.|
