public interface LeaderElectionService
Prior to using this service, it has to be started calling the start method. The start method takes the contender as a parameter. If there are multiple contenders, then each contender has to instantiate its own leader election service.
Once a contender has been granted leadership he has to confirm the received leader session ID
by calling the method
confirmLeadership(UUID, String). This will notify the leader election
service, that the contender has accepted the leadership specified and that the leader session id as
well as the leader address can now be published for leader retrieval services.
