 * All proper Java frameworks implement some sort of object life cycle. In Log4j, the main interface for handling
 * the life cycle context of an object is this one. An object first starts in the {@link State#INITIALIZED} state
 * by default to indicate the class has been loaded. From here, calling the {@link #start()} method will change this
 * state to {@link State#STARTING}. After successfully being started, this state is changed to {@link State#STARTED}.
 * When the {@link #stop()} is called, this goes into the {@link State#STOPPING} state. After successfully being
 * stopped, this goes into the {@link State#STOPPED} state. In most circumstances, implementation classes should
 * store their {@link State} in a {@code volatile} field or inside an
 * {@link java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicReference} dependent on synchronization and concurrency requirements.

public interface LifeCycle {

     * Status of a life cycle like a {@link LoggerContext}.

        /** Has started. */
        /** Stopping is in progress. */
