Interface MultiFormatStringBuilderFormattable

All Superinterfaces:
Message, MultiformatMessage, Serializable, StringBuilderFormattable
All Known Implementing Classes:
MapMessage, StringMapMessage, StructuredDataMessage

public interface MultiFormatStringBuilderFormattable extends MultiformatMessage, StringBuilderFormattable
A Message that can render itself in more than one way. The format string is used by the Message implementation as extra information that it may use to help it to determine how to format itself. For example, MapMessage accepts a format of "XML" to tell it to render the Map as XML instead of its default format of {key1="value1" key2="value2"}.
