package org.picocontainer;

 * <p>An interface which is implemented by components that can be started and stopped. The {@link Startable#start()}
 * must be called at the begin of the component lifecycle. It can be called again only after a call to
 * {@link Startable#stop()}. The {@link Startable#stop()} method must be called at the end of the component lifecycle,
 * and can further be called after every {@link Startable#start()}. If a component implements the {@link Disposable}
 * interface as well, {@link Startable#stop()} should be called before {@link Disposable#dispose()}.</p>
 * <p/>
 * <p>For more advanced and pluggable lifecycle support, see the functionality offered by picocontainer-gems
 * subproject.</p>
 * @version $Revision: 3602 $
 * @see org.picocontainer.Disposable the Disposable interface if you need to <code>dispose() semantics.

public interface Startable {
     * Start this component. Called initially at the begin of the lifecycle. It can be called again after a stop.
    void start();

     * Stop this component. Called near the end of the lifecycle. It can be called again after a further start. Implement
     * {@link Disposable} if you need a single call at the definite end of the lifecycle.
    void stop();
