All Implemented Interfaces:
java.io.Serializable

public class ActivityUniqueKey
extends java.lang.Object
implements java.io.Serializable

This class implements a unique activity key. The OMG interface defines the key returned by the key() method as unique within the scope of the containing process only. The key of a process in turn is unique only among the processes with a common process manager.

This class therefore combines the activity key, the process key and the process manager name to a unique activity key.
