Class DeadEvent

  • public class DeadEvent
    extends Object
    Wraps an event that was posted, but which had no subscribers and thus could not be delivered.

    Registering a DeadEvent subscriber is useful for debugging or logging, as it can detect misconfigurations in a system's event distribution.

      • toString

        public String toString()
        Description copied from class: java.lang.Object
        Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

        The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

         getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
        toString in class Object
        a string representation of the object.
