Interface CapabilityMap

All Known Implementing Classes:
BaseCapabilityMap

public interface CapabilityMap

The CapabilityMap interface represents a list that stores capabilities a client is capable of. It is accessed by the portlet container to get information about the client's capabilities.

The names of the capabilities are matched by the class variable names of the class Capability. To add a capability use the class variable name and not the internally used string value.
