DDSJAVA — Misnamed Listener Helper

  • Key: DDSJAVA-37
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16589
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ZettaScale Technology ( Angelo Corsaro, PhD.)
  • Summary:

    The name of the classes DataReaderAdapter/DataWriterAdapter are misleading since what
    they are really providing are listeners with some default behaviour.

    Rename the classes DataReaderAdapter/DataWriterAdapter to
    SimpleDataReaderListener and SimpleDataWriterListener.

    For the SimpleDataReaderListener one could implement trivially all
    the method but the one that notifies the availability of data,
    e.g. <onDataAvailable>

  • Disposition: Resolved — DDS-Java 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    This issue is closed without any changes. Providing no-op listener implementations, and replacing “Listener” with “Adapter” in the class name, is a common JDK idiom. You will see it throughput AWT and Swing, for example, which abound with listeners. The rationale for this pattern is described in section, “Listeners”.
    Disposition: Closed, no change
