public interface ThreadContextProvider
Third party providers of thread context implement this interface to enable the provided type of context to participate in thread context capture and propagation when the
ThreadContextare used to create and contextualize dependent actions and tasks.
Application code must never access the classes within this
spipackage. Instead, application code uses the
ThreadContextProviderimplementation and related classes are packaged within the third party provider's JAR file. The implementation is made discoverable via the standard
ServiceLoadermechanism. The JAR file that packages it must include a file of the following name and location,
The content of the aforementioned file must be one or more lines, each specifying the fully qualified name of a
ThreadContextProviderimplementation that is provided within the JAR file.
ThreadContextmust use the
ServiceLoaderto identify all available implementations of
ThreadContextProviderthat can participate in thread context capture and propagation and must invoke them either to capture current thread context or establish default thread context per the configuration of the
ThreadContextinstance wherever these interfaces are used to create and contextualize dependent actions and tasks.
All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
clearedContext(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.String> props)Returns empty/cleared context of the provided type.
currentContext(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.String> props)Captures from the current thread a snapshot of the provided thread context type.
getThreadContextType()Returns a human readable identifier for the type of thread context that is captured by this
ThreadContextSnapshot currentContext(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.String> props)Captures from the current thread a snapshot of the provided thread context type.
props- provided for compatibility with EE Concurrency spec, which allows for specifying a set of 'execution properties' when capturing thread context. Thread context providers that don't supply or use execution properties can ignore this parameter.
- immutable snapshot of the provided type of context, captured from the current thread.
Transactioncontext provider may raise this exception if it chooses not to support the optional capability of propagating Transaction context across threads. This exception flows back to the application when the application invokes an operation that captures context, such as
ThreadContextSnapshot clearedContext(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.String> props)
Returns empty/cleared context of the provided type. This context is not captured from the current thread, but instead represents the behavior that you get for this context type when no particular context has been applied to the thread.
This is used in cases where the provided type of thread context should not be propagated from the requesting thread or inherited from the thread of execution, in which case it is necessary to establish an empty/cleared context in its place, so that an action does not unintentionally inherit context of the thread that happens to run it.
For example, a security context provider's empty/cleared context ensures there is no authenticated user on the thread. A transaction context provider's empty/cleared context ensures that any active transaction is suspended. And so forth.
props- provided for compatibility with EE Concurrency spec, which allows for specifying a set of 'execution properties'. Thread context providers that don't supply or use execution properties can ignore this parameter.
- immutable empty/default context of the provided type.
To ensure portability of applications, this will typically be a keyword that is defined by the same specification that defines the thread context type, or by a related MicroProfile specification.
ThreadContextinterface defines constants for some commonly used thread context types, including Application, Security, Transaction, and CDI.
The application can use the values documented for the various thread context types when configuring a
ThreadContextto capture and propagate only specific types of thread context.

It is an error for multiple thread context providers of identical type to be simultaneously available (for example, two providers of
CDIcontext found on the
ServiceLoader). If this is found to be the case,
ThreadContextmust fail to inject.
- identifier for the provided type of thread context.
