Specifying the Default Value of an Attribute

The default value of an attribute is the value that is applied if the attribute is omitted when the element is written to the domain configuration file.

To specify the default value of an attribute, set the defaultValue element of the @Attribute annotation to a string that contains the default value. If you do not set this element, the parameter has no default value.
