    interface  ConstructorProperties
    An annotation on a constructor that shows how the parameters of that constructor correspond to the constructed object's getter methods.
    interface  JavaBean
    An annotation used to specify some class-related information for the automatically generated BeanInfo classes.
    interface  Transient
    Indicates that an attribute called "transient" should be declared with the given value when the Introspector constructs a PropertyDescriptor or EventSetDescriptor classes associated with the annotated code element.
  • Uses of Target in java.io

    Classes in java.io with annotations of type Target
    Modifier and Type Class Description

  • Uses of Target in java.lang

    Classes in java.lang with annotations of type Target
    Modifier and Type Class Description
    interface  Deprecated
    A program element annotated @Deprecated is one that programmers are discouraged from using.
    interface  FunctionalInterface
    An informative annotation type used to indicate that an interface type declaration is intended to be a functional interface as defined by the Java Language Specification.
    interface  Override
    Indicates that a method declaration is intended to override a method declaration in a supertype.
    interface  SafeVarargs
    A programmer assertion that the body of the annotated method or constructor does not perform potentially unsafe operations on its varargs parameter.
    interface  SuppressWarnings
    Indicates that the named compiler warnings should be suppressed in the annotated element (and in all program elements contained in the annotated element).
  • Uses of Target in java.lang.annotation

    Classes in java.lang.annotation with annotations of type Target
    Modifier and Type Class Description

    Indicates that an annotation type is automatically inherited.
    interface  Native
    Indicates that a field defining a constant value may be referenced from native code.
    interface  Repeatable
    The annotation type java.lang.annotation.Repeatable is used to indicate that the annotation type whose declaration it (meta-)annotates is repeatable.
    interface  Retention
    Indicates how long annotations with the annotated type are to be retained.
    interface  Target
    Indicates the contexts in which an annotation type is applicable.

    Annotation to mark an interface explicitly as being an MXBean interface, or as not being an MXBean interface.
  • Uses of Target in javax.swing

    Classes in javax.swing with annotations of type Target
    Modifier and Type Class Description
    interface  SwingContainer
    An annotation used to specify some swing-related information for the automatically generated BeanInfo classes.
