Annotation Type NestedConfigurationProperty

  • @Target(value=FIELD)
    public @interface NestedConfigurationProperty
    Indicates that a field in a ConfigurationProperties object should be treated as if it were a nested type. This annotation has no bearing on the actual binding processes, but it is used by the spring-boot-configuration-processor as a hint that a field is not bound as a single value. When this is specified, a nested group is created for the field and its type is harvested.

    This has no effect on collections and maps as these types are automatically identified.
