Class NodeSnapshot

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable

    public final class NodeSnapshot
    extends Object
    implements Serializable
    Gets a serializable snapshot of a node, including all of its children. Nodes themselves are Remote objects. Thus any iteration over them incurs may round-trips to the RMI server. This snapshot mechanism allows calling code to get the current state of the node tree with a single RMI call.
