Interface Feature

  • @ConsumerType
    public interface Feature
    A feature is defined by its name. Features are registered as OSGi services.

    Feature names should be globally unique. If multiple features have the same name, the feature with the highest service ranking is accessible through the Features service while those with lower service rankings are ignored.

    This interface is expected to be implemented by feature providers.
