Method Detail


PollableSource.Status process()
                              throws EventDeliveryException

Attempt to pull an item from the source, sending it to the channel.

When driven by an EventDrivenSourceRunner process is guaranteed to be called only by a single thread at a time, with no concurrency. Any other mechanism driving a pollable source must follow the same semantics.

READY if one or more events were created from the source. BACKOFF if no events could be created from the source.
EventDeliveryException - If there was a failure in delivering to the attached channel, or if a failure occurred in acquiring data from the source.
