For the purposes of matching responses and NOTIFY messages with SUBSCRIBE messages, the event-type portion of the "Event" header is compared byte-by-byte, and the "id" parameter token (if present) is compared byte-by-byte. An "Event" header containing an "id" parameter never matches an "Event" header without an "id" parameter. No other parameters are considered when performing a comparison, i.e. "Event: foo; id=1234" would match "Event: foo; param=abcd; id=1234", but not "Event: Foo; id=1234".
There MUST be exactly one event type listed per event header. Multiple events per message are disallowed i.e Subscribers MUST include exactly one "Event" header in SUBSCRIBE requests, indicating to which event or class of events they are subscribing. The "Event" header will contain a token which indicates the type of state for which a subscription is being requested. This token will correspond to an event package which further describes the semantics of the event or event class. The "Event" header MAY also contain an "id" parameter. When a subscription is created in the notifier, it stores the event package name and the "Event" header "id" parameter (if present) as part of the subscription information.
This "id" parameter, if present:
eventType- the new string defining the eventType supported in this EventHeader
java.text.ParseExceptionwhich signals that an error has been reached unexpectedly while parsing the eventType value.
eventId- the new string defining the eventId of this EventHeader
java.text.ParseExceptionwhich signals that an error has been reached unexpectedly while parsing the eventId value.
