      • getFieldTypes

        java.util.Set<java.lang.Class<?>> getFieldTypes()
        The types of fields that may be annotated with the <A> annotation.
      • getPrinter

        Printer<?> getPrinter(A annotation,
                              java.lang.Class<?> fieldType)
        Get the Printer to print the value of a field of fieldType annotated with annotation.

        If the type T the printer accepts is not assignable to fieldType, a coercion from fieldType to T will be attempted before the Printer is invoked.

        Parameters:
        annotation - the annotation instance
        fieldType - the type of field that was annotated
        Returns:
        the printer
      • getParser

        Parser<?> getParser(A annotation,
                            java.lang.Class<?> fieldType)
        Get the Parser to parse a submitted value for a field of fieldType annotated with annotation.

        If the object the parser returns is not assignable to fieldType, a coercion to fieldType will be attempted before the field is set.

        Parameters:
        annotation - the annotation instance
        fieldType - the type of field that was annotated
        Returns:
        the parser
