public interface IDisposable
The interface that should be implemented by services that make themselves
available through the
IAdaptable mechanism. This is the
interface that drives the majority of services provided at the workbench
A service has life-cycle. When the constructor completes, the service must be
fully functional. When it comes time for the service to go away, then the
service will receive a
dispose() call. At this point, the service
must release all resources and detach all listeners. A service can only be
disposed once; it cannot be reused.
This interface has nothing to do with OSGi services.
This interface can be extended or implemented by clients.
