public interface DesignMode

This interface is intended to be implemented by, or delegated from, instances of java.beans.beancontext.BeanContext, in order to propagate to its nested hierarchy of java.beans.beancontext.BeanContextChild instances, the current "designTime" property.

The JavaBeans specification defines the notion of design time as is a mode in which JavaBeans instances should function during their composition and customization in a interactive design, composition or construction tool, as opposed to runtime when the JavaBean is part of an applet, application, or other live Java executable abstraction.
