Class TypeExcludeFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Aware, BeanFactoryAware, TypeFilter
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    AnnotationCustomizableTypeExcludeFilter


    public class TypeExcludeFilter
    extends Object
    implements TypeFilter, BeanFactoryAware
    Provides exclusion TypeFilters that are loaded from the BeanFactory and automatically applied to SpringBootApplication scanning. Can also be used directly with @ComponentScan as follows:
     @ComponentScan(excludeFilters = @Filter(type = FilterType.CUSTOM, classes = TypeExcludeFilter.class))
     

    Implementations should provide a subclass registered with BeanFactory and override the match(MetadataReader, MetadataReaderFactory) method. They should also implement a valid hashCode and equals methods so that they can be used as part of Spring test's application context caches.

    Note that TypeExcludeFilters are initialized very early in the application lifecycle, they should generally not have dependencies on any other beans. They are primarily used internally to support spring-boot-test.
