          Get the display data.
 

Method Detail

getDisplayData

ObjectDisplayDataMap getDisplayData()
Get the display data.
 Implementation Note:
   Can't make this method static for 2 reasons:
   1. Static methods can't be called for beans via JSP/JSTL EL 
      expressions, and the whole purpose of this method is to be 
      called from there.
   2. Java doesn't support having static methods in an interface
      or an abstract class.
 

Returns:
The display data.
