public interface NetworkCommBadge


This is a marker interface that enables access to the network; it implements no methods. Its presence or absence in a class is all that we're interested in. In this case, its prescence means that the class should be trusted to do Network socket communications, such as multicast, opening sockets, etc.

Note that this interface is declared public, which is not very secure. From Greg Frascadore, JavaPro May 1999.
