Annotation Type FromStringFactory

  • @Target(TYPE)
    public @interface FromStringFactory
    Annotation used on a type to indicate that another class, the factory, provides the 'from string' method.

    This annotation is applied at the type level, typically to an interface. It indicates the class which contains the relevant FromString annotation, which follows the normal rules.

    For example, the interface Foo could be annotated to define its associated factory as being FooFactory. The FooFactory class would then be expected to provide a method returning Foo with a single String parameter, annotated with FromString.
