Description Author  

This class can generate empty interface definitions.

It takes the name of a given interface and creates an empty definition for that interface, so other interfaces or classes that require that other interface exists can still be loaded without invoking the interface code.

The class also supports interfaces defined under given namespaces.

Certain packages require the inclusion of other dependency packages in order to be used.

However, sometimes you do not need the whole functionality of the package and all its dependencies.

This class provides a means to satisfy dependencies on external interfaces that may not be really necessary.

It can generate code for empty fake interfaces that can be used to satisfy those dependencies without taking so much resources loading unnecessary dependencies.
