public interface CyPayloadEvent<S,P> extends CyEvent<S>
An extension of CyEvent specifically for payload events. A payload event is a single event that contains a collection of payload objects, which represent the state change of the event. Payload events are used in cases where many small changes can be combined into a single event object (such as node creation or table row modification). The goal is to prevent too many events from being fired.

Cytoscape Backwards Compatibility (SPI Interface): We expect that this interface will be implemented. Therefore to maintain backwards compatibility this interface will only be modified for major version updates.
