import java.util.List;

 * Listens for provisioning of objects. Useful for gathering timing information
 * about provisioning, post-provision initialization, and more.
 * @author (Sam Berlin)
 * @since 4.0
public interface ProvisionListener {

   * Invoked by Guice when an object requires provisioning. Provisioning occurs
   * when Guice locates and injects the dependencies for a binding. For types
   * bound to a Provider, provisioning encapsulates the {@link Provider#get}
   * method. For toInstance or constant bindings, provisioning encapsulates
   * the injecting of {@literal @}{@code Inject}ed fields or methods.
   * For other types, provisioning encapsulates the construction of the
   * object. If a type is bound within a {@link Scope}, provisioning depends on
   * the scope. Types bound in Singleton scope will only be provisioned once.
   * Types bound in no scope will be provisioned every time they are injected.
   * Other scopes define their own behavior for provisioning.
   * <p>
   * To perform the provision, call {@link ProvisionInvocation#provision()}.
   * If you do not explicitly call provision, it will be automatically done after
   * this method returns.  It is an error to call provision more than once.
  <T> void onProvision(ProvisionInvocation provision);

   * Encapsulates a single act of provisioning.
   * @since 4.0
  public abstract static class ProvisionInvocation<T> {

     * Returns the Binding this is provisioning.
     * <p>
     * You must not call {@link Provider#get()} on the provider returned by
     * {@link Binding#getProvider}, otherwise you will get confusing error messages.
    public abstract Binding<T> getBinding();

    /** Performs the provision, returning the object provisioned. */
    public abstract T provision();
    /** Returns the dependency chain that led to this object being provisioned. */
    public abstract List<DependencyAndSource> getDependencyChain();
