Subject [POC] Release-less ComponentManager
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2002 12:10:31 GMT
Hi there,

I briefly mentioned in one mail that it would be possible to use dynamic 
proxies to provide a release-less interface for pooled components. I did 
a simple proof-of-concept implementation (shown below), in case someone 
might be interested. It of course works, but is far from efficient.

As I also mentioned, there's always a small performance hit associated 
with dynamic proxies. In many cases this is acceptable, but I would 
still suggest including a release() method of some sort in the CM 
replacement interface. However, dynamic proxies could be used at some 
level to provide additional functionality, such as access control.

             new ReleaseHandler( m_source, role );
