019/**
020 * An interface defining life-cycle methods for instances to be served by an
021 * {@link ObjectPool}.
022 * <p>
023 * By contract, when an {@link ObjectPool} delegates to a
024 * {@link PooledObjectFactory},
025 * <ol>
026 *  <li>
027 *   {@link #makeObject} is called whenever a new instance is needed.
028 *  </li>
029 *  <li>
030 *   {@link #activateObject} is invoked on every instance that has been
031 *   {@link #passivateObject passivated} before it is
032 *   {@link ObjectPool#borrowObject borrowed} from the pool.
033 *  </li>
034 *  <li>
035 *   {@link #validateObject} may be invoked on {@link #activateObject activated}
036 *   instances to make sure they can be {@link ObjectPool#borrowObject borrowed}
037 *   from the pool. {@link #validateObject} may also be used to
038 *   test an instance being {@link ObjectPool#returnObject returned} to the pool
039 *   before it is {@link #passivateObject passivated}. It will only be invoked
040 *   on an activated instance.
041 *  </li>
042 *  <li>
043 *   {@link #passivateObject} is invoked on every instance when it is returned
044 *   to the pool.
045 *  </li>
046 *  <li>
047 *   {@link #destroyObject} is invoked on every instance when it is being
048 *   "dropped" from the pool (whether due to the response from
049 *   {@link #validateObject}, or for reasons specific to the pool
050 *   implementation.) There is no guarantee that the instance being destroyed
051 *   will be considered active, passive or in a generally consistent state.
052 *  </li>
053 * </ol>
054 * {@link PooledObjectFactory} must be thread-safe. The only promise
055 * an {@link ObjectPool} makes is that the same instance of an object will not
056 * be passed to more than one method of a <code>PoolableObjectFactory</code>
057 * at a time.
058 * <p>
059 * While clients of a {@link KeyedObjectPool} borrow and return instances of
060 * the underlying value type {@code V}, the factory methods act on instances of
061 * {@link PooledObject PooledObject&lt;V&gt;}.  These are the object wrappers that
062 * pools use to track and maintain state information about the objects that
063 * they manage.
064 *
065 * @param <T> Type of element managed in this factory.
