Method Detail


void execute(EventHandler handler)
             throws Exception
Execute the event handler method. If Object is not null, do not iterate further through the handler chain. If appropriate, the returned Object will be the return value.

handler - call the appropriate method on this handler
Exception - generic exception potentially thrown by event handlers


boolean isDone()
Called after execute() to see if iterating should stop. Should always return false before method execute() is run.

true if no more event handlers for this method should be called.


Object getReturnValue()
Get return value at end of all the iterations

null if no return value is required
