    • Method Detail

      • start

        void start()
        This method is invoked when a service is added to an agent. This can occur either because a client looked up the service and it was lazily instantiated by the agent, or because the service was registered manually via IProvisioningAgent.registerService(String, Object).
      • stop

        void stop()
        This method is invoked when a service is removed from an agent. This can occur either because the agent was stopped, or because the service was manually unregistered via IProvisioningAgent.unregisterService(String, Object).

        Services must not attempt to obtain further services from their agent while stopping, as some required services may no longer be available.
