public interface DefinitionsReader
from a source.
This interface provides a standard way to read
objects from a source. Implementations
should define what the source is, whether it be a persistent store such as a
configuration file or database, or something like a web service. The
DefinitionsReader is responsible for reading from a single location. It does
not perform any internationalization duties or inheritance of Definitions.
It only reads from the source and returns a Map of objects read.
Map<String,Definition> read(Object source)
objects from a source. Implementations should publish what type of source object is expected.
source- The source from which definitions will be read.
Definitionobjects read from the source.
DefinitionsFactoryException- if the source is invalid or an error occurs when reading definitions.
