- Type Parameters:
R- the return type of this visitor's methods
P- the type of the additional parameter to this visitor's methods.
- All Implemented Interfaces:
- API Note:
AnnotationValueVisitorinterface implemented by this class may have methods added to it in the future to accommodate new, currently unknown, language structures added to future versions of the Java programming language. Therefore, methods whose names begin with
"visit"may be added to this class in the future; to avoid incompatibilities, classes and subclasses which extend this class should not declare any instance methods with names beginning with
When such a new visit method is added, the default implementation in this class will be to directly or indirectly call the
visitUnknownmethod. A new abstract annotation value visitor class will also be introduced to correspond to the new language level; this visitor will have different default behavior for the visit method in question. When a new visitor is introduced, portions of this visitor class may be deprecated, including its constructors.

AbstractAnnotationValueVisitor6Deprecated.Release 6 is obsolete; update to a visitor for a newer release level.Constructor for concrete subclasses to call.
visitVisits any annotation value as if by passing itself to that value's
accept. The invocation
v.visit(av, p)is equivalent to
visitVisits an annotation value as if by passing itself to that value's
nullfor the additional parameter. The invocation
v.visit(av)is equivalent to
visitUnknownVisits an unknown kind of annotation value. This can occur if the language evolves and new kinds of value can be stored in an annotation.

- Implementation Requirements:
- The default implementation of this method in
AbstractAnnotationValueVisitor6will always throw
new UnknownAnnotationValueException(av, p). This behavior is not required of a subclass.
av- the unknown value being visited
p- a visitor-specified parameter
- the result of the visit
