Parameters:
ann - The annotation.
Returns:
Whether the annotation is in the JAXB package.

findCachability

public Boolean findCachability(AnnotatedClass ac)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector
Method that checks whether specified class has annotations that indicate that it is (or is not) cachable. Exact semantics depend on type of class annotated and using class (factory or provider).

Currently only used with deserializers, to determine whether provider should cache instances, and if no annotations are found, assumes non-cachable instances.

Specified by:

Method for locating name used as "root name" (for use by some serializers when outputting root-level object -- mostly for XML compatibility purposes) for given class, if one is defined. Returns null if no declaration found; can return explicit empty String, which is usually ignored as well as null.

Specified by:
findRootName in class AnnotationIntrospector

findPropertiesToIgnore

public String[] findPropertiesToIgnore(AnnotatedClass ac)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector
Method for finding list of properties to ignore for given class (null is returned if not specified). List of property names is applied after other detection mechanisms, to filter out these specific properties from being serialized and deserialized.

Specified by:

Returns:
Class to use instead of runtime type

findSerializationInclusion

Returns:
Enumerated value indicating which properties to include in serialization

findSerializationTyping

public JsonSerialize.Typing findSerializationTyping(Annotated a)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector

findSerializationViews

public Class<?>[] findSerializationViews(Annotated a)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector
Method for checking if annotated serializable property (represented by field or getter method) has definitions for views it is to be included in. If null is returned, no view definitions exist and property is always included; otherwise it will only be included for views included in returned array. View matches are checked using class inheritance rules (sub-classes inherit inclusions of super-classes)

Specified by:
findSerializationViews in class AnnotationIntrospector
Parameters:
a - Annotated serializable property (field or getter method)
Returns:
Array of views (represented by classes) that the property is included in; if null, always included (same as returning array containing Object.class)

findSerializationPropertyOrder

public String[] findSerializationPropertyOrder(AnnotatedClass ac)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector
Method for accessing defined property serialization order (which may be partial). May return null if no ordering is defined.

Specified by:

Specified by:
findGettablePropertyName in class AnnotationIntrospector

hasAsValueAnnotation

public boolean hasAsValueAnnotation(AnnotatedMethod am)
Description copied from class: AnnotationIntrospector
Method for checking whether given method has an annotation that suggests that the return value of annotated method should be used as "the value" of the object instance; usually serialized as a primitive value such as String or number.
