Interface DependencySelector

public interface DependencySelector
Decides what dependencies to include in the dependency graph.

Note: Implementations must be stateless.

Warning: This hook is called from a hot spot and therefore implementations should pay attention to performance. Among others, implementations should provide a semantic equals() method.
