Annotation Type Symbol

  • @Target({PARAMETER,FIELD})
    public @interface Symbol
    Used to inject a symbol value, via a symbol name. This is used much like Value annotation, except that symbols are not expanded ... the entire value is a symbol name. This allows the annotation to reference a public constant variable. The injected value may be coerced from string to an alternate type (defined by the field or parameter to which the @Symbol annotation is attached). For better control, use the IntermediateType annotation as well, which allows the string to be coerced to an alternate type before being coerced a second time to the field or parameter type.
