Class ConsoleSession

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    ServiceFactory<Object>

    public abstract class ConsoleSession
    extends Object
    implements ServiceFactory<Object>
    A console session service provides the input and output to a single console session. The input will be used by the console to read in console commands. The output will be used to print the results of console commands.

    The console session must be registered as an OSGi service in order to be associated with a console instance. The console implementation will discover any console session services and will create a new console instance using the console session for input and output. When a session is closed then the console session service will be unregistered and the console instance will terminate and be disposed of. The console instance will also terminate if the console session service is unregistered for any reason.
