Sometimes it is desirable to check if a Context Aware Configuration is there at all via the high level API. Both methods as and asCollection will never return null, as they will always consider the default values. All other methods require to set at least a name.
So to simply check if a CAC content resource is existing for a certain annotation class (defining a Context Aware Configuration) the following code is necessary:
As there is no method exported to derive the name from an annotation type this would require additional custom code.
I propose to add a simple
which is only then supposed to return true in case there is an underlying CAC content resource which can be adapted to the given class.
