JBoss API: Class TimeoutFactory

Class TimeoutFactory


public class TimeoutFactory
extends java.lang.Object

The timeout factory. This is written with performance in mind. In case of n active timeouts, creating, cancelling and firing timeouts all operate in time O(log(n)). If a timeout is cancelled, the timeout is not discarded. Instead the timeout is saved to be reused for another timeout. This means that if no timeouts are fired, this class will eventually operate without allocating anything on the heap.
