ITarget

pentaho.action. ITarget

The ITarget interface represents the entity which is acted upon or the place where the action takes place.

A target controls the execution of actions in it. Depending on the target and type of action, events may be emitted for each of the action execution's phases. Consult the documentation of the target type to know how it handles the execution of a given action.

It is advisable that when a target does not know a specific action type that it executes it generically, by delegating all of its phases to events.
