- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface PropertiesProviderAn interface to be implemented by classes providing a map of properties associated with the instances of those classes.
getPropertiesReturn a map of user properties. What to store and which keys to use is largely up to the user of classes implementing this interface, since those classes will generally be oblivious to the map's contents. There are no guarantees regarding the thread-safety of the returned map, unless otherwise specified by implementors.
