public interface Decoder
Provides the highest level of abstraction for Decoders. This is the sister interface of
Encoder. All Decoders
implement this common generic interface.
Allows a user to pass a generic Object to any Decoder implementation in the codec package.
One of the two interfaces at the center of the codec package.
Object decode(Object pObject) throws DecoderException
ClassCastException occurs this decode method will throw a DecoderException.
pObject - an object to "decode"
DecoderException - a decoder exception can be thrown for any number of reasons. Some good candidates are that the
parameter passed to this method is null, a param cannot be cast to the appropriate type for a specific encoder.
