public interface IEventFilter

An interface for event filters. The debugger registers an event filter for a given event when it is interested in receiving notifications about that event from the VM.

Filters are attached to EventRequests in order to allow the debugger to specify that an event should be sent only when the filters for the event request all match.

No filters means "send all notifications".

Method Summary

matches(Event event)

Method Details


public boolean matches(Event event)
