public non-sealed interface JStachioExtensionProvider extends JStachioExtension
An extension that is a factory that provides other extensions. All methods are optional (default) so that implementations can decide what particularly plugins/services they want to provide.

    • provideFilter

      default @Nullable JStachioFilter provideFilter()
      Provide a filter or not. The final filter is a composite and becomes a filter chain.

    • provideConfig

      default @Nullable JStachioConfig provideConfig()
      Provide a config or not. The final config is a composite of all the found configs.

      Specifically if multiple instances of JStachioExtension are found that return a nonnull they will be combined by looping through all of them to find a nonnull value for JStachioConfig.getProperty(String). If no configs are provided or no services found JStachioExtensions instance will use the default config which uses System.getProperties().

    • provideTemplateFinder

      Provide a template finder or not. The final template finder is a composite of all the other ones found. See JStachioTemplateFinder.order() for ordering details.

      If no template finders are provided then the default template finder that uses reflection and the ServiceLoader is used.
