public interface Builder
extends Constructed

The base interface for classes that build SSL protocol objects. The general contract for Builder implementations is that they maintain a buffer that grows to fit the object being built; the allocated size of this buffer may be larger than the built object needs, but the general effort will be not to allocate too large a buffer.

Once the object is built, through various setters for the object's attributes, the final buffer may be retrieved with the buffer() method.

Method Summary

Returns the final buffer, possibly containing the built object.

Methods inherited from interface

Method Details


public ByteBuffer buffer()
Returns the final buffer, possibly containing the built object. The returned buffer will be "trimmed" to size: its position will be zero, and its limit and capacity set to the length of the built object.
