+ * <p>
+ * An interface to be implemented by objects which can detect whether a reload
+ * operation is required.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * This interface is used by a {@link ReloadingController} object. When a
+ * reloading check is to be performed, it is delegated to a concrete
+ * implementation. The implementation decides whether (specific) criteria for a
+ * reload are fulfilled, so that the controller can react accordingly.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * This interface does not define how a check for a reload is performed. This is
+ * completely up to a concrete implementation. There is just one method for
+ * executing the check and one method to notify the {@code ReloadingDetector}
+ * that the reload actually happened; this method can be used to reset the
+ * internal state so that the conditions for the next reload can be detected.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * When used together with {@code ReloadingController} an implementation does
+ * not have to be thread-safe. The controller takes care for synchronization so
+ * that an instance is accessed by a single thread only.
+ * </p>
+ *
+ * @version $Id$
