name - The name of the data

IllegalArgumentException - if name is not a valid Java identifier or if type is not a syntactically legal Java type name. Java reserved words are not considered illegal here.
Method Detail


public Object clone()

Returns a shallow clone of this instance. The clone is obtained by simply calling super.clone(), thus calling the default native shallow cloning mechanism implemented by Object.clone(). No deeper cloning of any internal field is made.

Since this class is immutable, cloning is chiefly of interest to subclasses.


public String getType()
Returns the type or class name of the data.

the type string.


public boolean equals(Object o)
Compare this MBeanParameterInfo to another.

equals in class MBeanFeatureInfo
o - the object to compare to.
true iff o is an MBeanParameterInfo such that its MBeanFeatureInfo.getName(), getType(), and MBeanFeatureInfo.getDescription() values are equal (not necessarily identical) to those of this MBeanParameterInfo.


public int hashCode()
hashCode in class MBeanFeatureInfo
