Class AbstractAnnotationReader

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public abstract class AbstractAnnotationReader
    extends Object
    implements AnnotationReader
    Abstract implementation of a metadata annotations reader. A metadata annotation reader takes in a class and converts its annotations into internal metadata. Any implementation has to implement the method "processClassAnnotations" which creates the ClassMetaData record for the class, and the method "processFieldAnnotations" which updates the ClassMetaData with its field definition.

    Each annotation reader supports a set of annotations. So it could support "JPA" annotations, or "JDO" annotations, or "DataNucleus" annotations or whatever.
