/// An interface for running components.
/// This interface is implemented by components that provide an execution
/// environment for running particular classes of programs. For example,
/// the Dart virtual machine exposes a service with this interface to run
/// Dart programs.
/// To specify the runner needed to run your component, set the "runner_url"
/// property in your component's manifest.
/// Note: The component manager is the only intended direct client of this
/// interface.

/// The caller of this method takes responsibility for binding client
/// connections and controlling the lifetime of the newly started
/// component instance through the requested `controller`.
/// If an error is returned, the runner must ensure that resources
/// are cleaned up; the caller will not invoke the `controller`
/// interfaces, for example.
/// Errors:
/// - `INVALID_ARGUMENTS`: `resolved_url` is not supported by this runner;
/// `program` contains missing or invalid arguments; or a required field
/// in `start_info` (such `ns`, `outgoing_dir`, or `runtime_dir`) was not
/// provided.
/// - `INSTANCE_CANNOT_START`: The runner could not start the component.
/// For example, a critical part of the program could not be found or
/// loaded, or the referenced binary was invalid for this runner.
/// - `NO_SPACE`: The component could not be launched due to lack of
/// resources.
/// - `INTERNAL`: An unexpected internal runner error was encountered.

/// An interface for binding client connections and controlling the lifetime
/// of a component instance started using `ComponentRunner.Start()`.
/// When the controlled component instance terminates or becomes inaccessible
/// for any reason, the server invokes `OnEpitaph()` and closes its endpoint
/// of the controller interface.
/// A component may exist in one of two states, Started or Stopped. The component
/// is Started from time `ComponentRunner.Start()` is called until the
/// ComponentRunner closes the ComponentController handle. The component then
/// transitions to Stopped.
/// `Stop()` is called to indicate a ComponentRunner should end a component's
/// execution. `Kill()` indicates that a runner must halt a component's
/// execution immediately and close the ComponentController's server end. After
/// the ComponentController is closed the component manager can tear down the
/// namespace it hosts for the stopped component. The component manager may
/// call `Kill()` without first having called `Stop()`.
/// This interface uses a FIDL epitaph to indicate that the controller
/// component instance has terminated and to describe its final disposition.
/// The following epitaph status codes have particular significance:
/// - `ZX_OK`: The component instance was successfully terminated in response
/// to `Stop()` and its runtime resources have been fully released.
/// - `ZX_ERR_UNAVAILABLE`: The runner was unable to start the component
/// instance. e.g. The runner could not retrieve the component's assets.
/// - `ERR_COMPONENT_DIED`: The component instance was started but
/// subsequently terminated unexpectedly.
/// Other status codes (e.g. `ZX_ERR_PEER_CLOSED`) may indicate a failure
/// of the component runner itself. The component manager may respond to such
/// failures by terminating the component runner's job to ensure system
/// stability.
protocol ComponentController {
/// Requests the runner to stop the controlled component instance.
/// After stopping the component instance, the server should report
/// an epitaph then close its endpoint of the controller interface.
/// Stop this component immediately. This ComponentRunner must immediately
/// kill the component instance, set an epitaph set on the channel, and
/// close the channel. After the channel closes, the component instance will
/// be considered by the component manager to be Stopped and the component's
/// namespace will be torn down.
/// Kill() may have been preceeded by Stop(), but that is not guaranteed.
