The SegmentList interface supports UI components that need to expose the named segments for a given handler.
WebSphere® Portlet Factory Designer's profile management tools use this interface to display a list of valid segments that can be assigned to a profile. Implementing this interface is optional for defining a handler.
To specify an implementation of a SegmentList interface for a handler you need to set the "class" attribute of the "SegmentList" element in your handler definition file. For example:
<SegmentList class="com.bowstreet.profiles.FileSegmentSelectionHandler" />
