Thread Safety

Public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Instance members are not guaranteed to be thread-safe.


NullMessageSource is an implementation of the NullObject pattern. It should be used in those situations where a IMessageSource needs to be passed (say to a method) but where the resolution of messages is not required.

There should not (typically) be a need to instantiate instances of this class; NullMessageSource does not maintan any state and the Null instance is thus safe to pass around.
