Interface PlasticClassListener

All Known Implementing Classes:
ComponentInstantiatorSourceImpl, PlasticClassListenerLogger

public interface PlasticClassListener

Allows a listener to be notified about classes about to be loaded by the manager's class loader. Some classes are loaded by the same class loader but not transformed (for example, inner classes). These do not generate events. In many cases, transforming a class will cause supporting classes (representing MethodInvocations, and other things) to be created; these do generate events, and can be distinguished by the event's type property.
