module-infofile, the suppression applies to elements within the file and not to types contained within the module.
As a matter of style, programmers should always use this annotation on the most deeply nested element where it is effective. If you want to suppress a warning in a particular method, you should annotate that method rather than its class.
Required Element SummaryModifier and TypeRequired ElementDescription
StringThe set of warnings that are to be suppressed by the compiler in the annotated element.
valueString valueThe set of warnings that are to be suppressed by the compiler in the annotated element. Duplicate names are permitted. The second and successive occurrences of a name are ignored. The presence of unrecognized warning names is not an error: Compilers must ignore any warning names they do not recognize. They are, however, free to emit a warning if an annotation contains an unrecognized warning name.
"unchecked"is used to suppress unchecked warnings. Compiler vendors should document the additional warning names they support in conjunction with this annotation type. They are encouraged to cooperate to ensure that the same names work across multiple compilers.
