    • Method Detail

      • doPostResolve

        protected boolean doPostResolve()
        Returns if resolving of this reference should be done in post- (true) or pre-stage (false).

      • getFixedTarget

        protected TARGET getFixedTarget()
        Support for a fixed reference.

        Override to provide the support.

        The fixed reference to return in cases the target reference is needed, and also serves as a verification if a new reference should be created or not. Returning null causes normal behavior (default).
      • clearFixedTarget

        protected void clearFixedTarget()
        Called to clear the fixed reference in case the reference is changed. This will revert back to normal processing.

        The "clone" method does not change to be overridden to clear the fixed target as this method is called during cloning.

        This method is called prior to calling "initializeReferenceClone()" during cloning.

        Override to provide the support. It is important to also implement this method along with "getFixedTarget".

        Sets a new value for this property. If any listener is present and the value has changed compare to the last value, the listener is informed.
        newValue - the new value.
        boolean true for value has changed, false for same value as current value.
        PropValidateException - When the constraints are not met.
