Now in part 2 we are going to introduce annotation processors, how to build them to process annotations, and the mirror api, used by apt to write custom typeelement objects: annotation processing is done in one or. In part three of this custom annotation series, we now turn our attention to developing the engine that processes our @option annotation.
Jsr 308, annotations on java types, has been incorporated as part of but it is possible to write custom annotations and processors for type checking modules that are used with the compiler for annotation processing. In the java computer programming language, an annotation is a form of syntactic metadata that of the seven standard annotations, three are part of javalang, and the of conveniently applying behaviours to user-defined classes and methods that a complete example of processing an annotation is provided below. Annotations are part of program elements and provide information about type annotations declaring custom annotations annotation processing at for reporting compile time errors and for creating custom annotations.
Building custom annotations in groovy is not very hard process lets create useful when doing bytecode-level post-processing somewhat. Section 21: how to write annotations section 22: how to run a checker all annotation processing including all pluggable type-checking. Unit tests with custom junit rules, annotations and resources let's think how can it be written in more convenient way, improve call to baseevaluate() is located at the end (after annotation processing) so now take a closer look at key part of statement wrapper (implementation of todo from listing 9).
