DelegatingWorkerFactory

public class DelegatingWorkerFactory
extends WorkerFactory

java.lang.Object
   ↳ androidx.work.WorkerFactory
     ↳ androidx.work.DelegatingWorkerFactory


A WorkerFactory which delegates to other factories. Factories can register themselves as delegates, and they will be invoked in order until a delegated factory returns a non-null ListenableWorker instance.

Summary

Public constructors

DelegatingWorkerFactory()

Creates a new instance of the DelegatingWorkerFactory.

Public methods

final void addFactory(WorkerFactory workerFactory)

Adds a WorkerFactory to the list of delegates.

final ListenableWorker createWorker(Context context, String workerClass, WorkerParameters parameters)

Override this method to implement your custom worker-creation logic.

Inherited methods

Public constructors

DelegatingWorkerFactory

public DelegatingWorkerFactory ()

Creates a new instance of the DelegatingWorkerFactory.

Public methods

addFactory

public final void addFactory (WorkerFactory workerFactory)

Adds a WorkerFactory to the list of delegates.

Parameters
workerFactory WorkerFactory: The WorkerFactory instance.

createWorker

public final ListenableWorker createWorker (Context context, 
                String workerClass, 
                WorkerParameters parameters)

Override this method to implement your custom worker-creation logic. Use Configuration.Builder.setWorkerFactory(WorkerFactory) to use your custom class.

Throwing an Exception here will crash the application. If a WorkerFactory is unable to create an instance of the ListenableWorker, it should return null so it can delegate to the default WorkerFactory.

Returns a new instance of the specified workerClassName given the arguments. The returned worker must be a newly-created instance and must not have been previously returned or invoked by WorkManager. Otherwise, WorkManager will throw an IllegalStateException.

Parameters
context Context: The application context

workerClass String: The class name of the worker to create

parameters WorkerParameters: Parameters for worker initialization

Returns
ListenableWorker A new ListenableWorker instance of type workerClassName, or null if the worker could not be created
