Interface InitialContextFactoryBuilder

public interface InitialContextFactoryBuilder
This interface represents a builder that creates initial context factories.

The JNDI framework allows for different initial context implementations to be specified at runtime. An initial context is created using an initial context factory. A program can install its own builder that creates initial context factories, thereby overriding the default policies used by the framework, by calling NamingManager.setInitialContextFactoryBuilder(). The InitialContextFactoryBuilder interface must be implemented by such a builder.
