 package javax.faces.lifecycle;

LifecycleFactory is a factory object that creates (if needed) and returns Lifecycle instances. Implementations of JavaServer Faces must provide at least a default implementation of Lifecycle. Advanced implementations (or external third party libraries) MAY provide additional Lifecycle implementations (keyed by lifecycle identifiers) for performing different types of request processing on a per-request basis.

There must be one LifecycleFactory instance per web application that is utilizing JavaServer Faces. This instance can be acquired, in a portable manner, by calling:

   LifecycleFactory factory = (LifecycleFactory)
 public abstract class LifecycleFactory {


The lifecycle identifier for the default Lifecycle instance for this JavaServer Faces implementation.

     public static final String DEFAULT_LIFECYCLE = "DEFAULT";


Register a new Lifecycle instance, associated with the specified lifecycleId, to be supported by this LifecycleFactory. This method may be called at any time, and makes the corresponding Lifecycle instance available throughout the remaining lifetime of this web application.

lifecycleId Identifier of the new Lifecycle
lifecycle Lifecycle instance that we are registering
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if a Lifecycle with the specified lifecycleId has already been registered
java.lang.NullPointerException if lifecycleId or lifecycle is null
     public abstract void addLifecycle(String lifecycleId,
                                       Lifecycle lifecycle);


Create (if needed) and return a Lifecycle instance for the specified lifecycle identifier. The set of available lifecycle identifiers is available via the getLifecycleIds() method.

Each call to getLifecycle() for the same lifecycleId, from within the same web application, must return the same Lifecycle instance.

lifecycleId Lifecycle identifier of the requested Lifecycle instance
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if no Lifecycle instance can be returned for the specified identifier
java.lang.NullPointerException if lifecycleId is null
    public abstract Lifecycle getLifecycle(String lifecycleId);


Return an Iterator over the set of lifecycle identifiers supported by this factory. This set must include the value specified by LifecycleFactory.DEFAULT_LIFECYCLE.

    public abstract Iterator<StringgetLifecycleIds();
