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
VisibilityChecker<T extends VisibilityChecker<T>> Interface for object used for determine which property elements (methods, fields, constructors) can be auto-detected, with respect to their visibility modifiers.
 

Class Summary
Annotated Shared base class used for anything on which annotations (included within a AnnotationMap).
AnnotatedClass  
AnnotatedConstructor  
AnnotatedField Object that represents non-static (and usually non-transient/volatile) fields of a class.
AnnotatedMember Intermediate base class for annotated entities that are members of a class; fields, methods and constructors.
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.
AnnotatedWithParams Intermediate base class that encapsulates features that constructors and methods share.
AnnotationMap Simple helper class used to keep track of collection of Jackson Annotations associated with annotatable things (methods, constructors, classes).
BasicBeanDescription Default BeanDescription implementation.
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.
VisibilityChecker.Std Default standard implementation is purely based on visibility modifier of given class members, and its configured minimum levels.
 

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.
