Class WriteContext

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.commons.betwixt.io.WriteContext

public abstract class WriteContext
extends java.lang.Object

Context against which content should be written.

Usage: This (logical) interface is a Parameter Object allowing additional, Betwixt-specific information to be passed through the SAX-inspired writing API.

It is likely that access will be required to methods in the Context used by the AbstractBeanWriter but it seems better to add these as neccessary using delegation rather than extending Context.
