public interface DiscoveryFormatProvider

Interface implemented by all discovery format provider classes, which is used by the Discovery class to identify format providers available via resource, as described in the documentation for the Discovery.getProtocol2(ClassLoader) method. Format provider classes should not implement this interface directly, but should instead implement at least one of the format provider sub-interfaces extending this interface--MulticastRequestEncoder, MulticastRequestDecoder, MulticastAnnouncementEncoder, MulticastAnnouncementDecoder, UnicastDiscoveryClient and UnicastDiscoveryServer--which declare methods for the various provider operations, such as encoding or decoding discovery data.
