public interface ReferenceContext
This interface is also used to pass in resources required by the external reference translation and construction SPIs. An example might be a translator from File to URL could work by copying the source file to a web share of some kind, but obviously this can't happen unless properties such as the location of the web share folder are known. These properties tend to be properties of the installation rather than of the code, referring as they do to resources on the machine hosting the reference manager (and elsewhere).
Where entities in the context represent properties of the platform rather than the 'session' they are likely to be configured in a central location such as a Spring context definition, this interface is neutral to those concerns.

Add an entity to the context.

T- The generic type of the returned entity list. In general the compiler is smart enough that you don't need to specify this, it can pick it up from the entityType parameter.
entityType- Class of entity to return. Use Object.class to return all entities within the reference context
