Interface IVMInstall2

  • All Known Implementing Classes:
    AbstractVMInstall, VMStandin

    public interface IVMInstall2
    Optional extensions that may be implemented by an IVMInstall.

    When an IVMInstall implements this interface, clients must call getVMArgs() in place of getVMArguments() and setVMArgs(String) in place of setVMArguments(String[]). This avoids the problem noted in bug 73493.

    Additionally, this interface optionally provides the Java version associated with a VM install.

    Clients that implement IVMInstall may additionally implement this interface. However, it is strongly recommended that clients subclass AbstractVMInstall instead, which already implements this interface, and will insulate clients from additional API additions in the future.
