Interface WalletExtension

  • public interface WalletExtension

    An object implementing this interface can be added to a Wallet and provide arbitrary byte arrays that will be serialized alongside the wallet. Extensions can be mandatory, in which case applications that don't know how to read the given data will refuse to load the wallet at all. Extensions identify themselves with a string ID that should use a Java-style reverse DNS identifier to avoid being mixed up with other kinds of extension. To use an extension, add an object that implements this interface to the wallet using Wallet.addExtension(WalletExtension) before you load it (to read existing data) and ensure it's present when the wallet is save (to write the data).

    Note that extensions are singletons - you cannot add two objects that provide the same ID to the same wallet.

    • Method Detail

      • getWalletExtensionID

        java.lang.String getWalletExtensionID()
        Returns a Java package/class style name used to disambiguate this extension from others.
      • isWalletExtensionMandatory

        boolean isWalletExtensionMandatory()
        If this returns true, the mandatory flag is set when the wallet is serialized and attempts to load it without the extension being in the wallet will throw an exception. This method should not change its result during the objects lifetime.
      • serializeWalletExtension

        byte[] serializeWalletExtension()
        Returns bytes that will be saved in the wallet.
      • deserializeWalletExtension

        void deserializeWalletExtension​(Wallet containingWallet,
                                        byte[] data)
                                 throws java.lang.Exception
        Loads the contents of this object from the wallet.
