public interface ClientAuthContext extends ClientAuth
A ClientAuthContext instance may be used concurrently by multiple callers.
Implementations of this interface are responsible for constructing
and initializing the encapsulated modules. The initialization step
includes passing the relevant request and response MessagePolicy objects
to the encapsulated modules. The MessagePolicy objects are obtained
by the ClientAuthConfig instance used to obtain the ClientAuthContext
ClientAuthConfig.getAuthContext for more information.
Implementations of this interface are instantiated by their associated configuration object such that they know which modules to invoke, in what order, and how results returned by preceding modules are to influence subsequent module invocations.
Calls to the inherited methods of this interface delegate to the corresponding methods of the encapsulated authentication modules.
