- public interface ILifeCycle
This interface represents the life cycle of a request. It is not intended to
be implemented by clients.
RWT divides the life cycle of an HTTP request into different phases that are
executed sequentially. Each phase has its special purpose and creates the
prerequisites needed by the following phases for proper execution.
The phases are:
- Prepare UI Root
- Responsible for invoking entry points.
- Read Data
- Reading request parameters and applying the contained status information
to the corresponding widgets. As an example, if a user has entered some
characters into a Text control, the characters are transmitted and applied to
the text attribute of the Text instance.
- Process Action
- Events are processed which trigger user actions. As an example, when a
Button has been pushed, the SelectionListeners attached to the Button are
changes to the client. Only those widget attributes that were changed during
the processing of the current request are being rendered. This results in a
minimal amount of data that needs to be transferred to the client. The widget
tree is not manipulated in this phase anymore.

PhaseListener with the life cycle.

public void removePhaseListener(
- Removes a
PhaseListener from the life cycle. Has no effect
if an identical listener is not yet registered.
