Package org.codehaus.jackson.map.introspect

Functionality needed for Bean introspection, required for detecting accessors and mutators for Beans, as well as locating and handling method annotations.

          Description

Interface Summary
MethodFilter Simple interface that defines API used to filter out irrelevant methods
 

Class Summary
Annotated Shared base class used for anything on which annotations (included within a AnnotationMap).
AnnotatedClass  
AnnotatedConstructor  
AnnotatedField  
AnnotatedMethod  
AnnotatedMethodMap Simple helper class used to keep track of collection of AnnotatedMethods, accessible by lookup.
AnnotatedParameter Object that represents method parameters, mostly so that associated annotations can be processed conveniently.
AnnotationMap Simple helper class used to keep track of collection of Jackson Annotations associated with annotatable things (methods, constructors, classes).
BasicBeanDescription  
BasicClassIntrospector  
BasicClassIntrospector.GetterMethodFilter Filter used to only include methods that have signature that is compatible with "getters": take no arguments, are non-static, and return something.
BasicClassIntrospector.SetterAndGetterMethodFilter Filter used if some getters (namely, once needed for "setterless collection injection") are also needed, not just setters.
BasicClassIntrospector.SetterMethodFilter Filter used to only include methods that have signature that is compatible with "setters": take one and only argument and are non-static.
JacksonAnnotationIntrospector AnnotationIntrospector implementation that handles standard Jackson annotations.
MemberKey Helper class needed to be able to efficiently access class member functions (Methods and Constructors) in Maps.
NopAnnotationIntrospector Dummy, "no-operation" implementation of AnnotationIntrospector.
 

Package org.codehaus.jackson.map.introspect Description

Functionality needed for Bean introspection, required for detecting accessors and mutators for Beans, as well as locating and handling method annotations.

Beyond collecting annotations, additional "method annotation inheritance" is also supported: whereas regular JDK classes do not add annotations from overridden methods in any situation. But code in this package does. Similarly class-annotations are inherited properly from interfaces, in addition to abstract and concrete classes.
