Annotation Type Consumes

public @interface Consumes

Defines the media types that the methods of a resource class or MessageBodyReader can accept. If not specified, a container will assume that any media type is acceptable. Method level annotations override a class level annotation. A container is responsible for ensuring that the method invoked is capable of consuming the media type of the HTTP request entity body. If no such method is available the container must respond with a HTTP "415 Unsupported Media Type" as specified by RFC 2616.
