public final class NonExistingResource
extends SyntheticResource

Simple helper class representing nonexisting resources. This is an utility class to create non existing resources. It is not meant to be used to check if a resource is a non existing resource. Use the ResourceUtil.isNonExistingResource(Resource) method instead (or check the resource type yourself). The reason for this is that this resource might be wrapped by other resource implementations like resource decorators etc.

Method Detail


public final String getResourceType()
Description copied from interface: Resource
The resource type is meant to point to rendering/processing scripts, editing dialogs, etc. It is usually a path in the repository, where scripts and other tools definitions are found, but the ResourceResolver is free to set this to any suitable value such as the primary node type of the JCR node from which the resource is created.

If the resource instance represents a resource which is not actually existing, this method returns Resource.RESOURCE_TYPE_NON_EXISTING.
