Subject [jira] [Updated] (DIGESTER-174) Inner List Annotation has wrong @Target for most of the predefined annotation rules
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 14:00:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIGESTER-174?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Andreas Sahlbach updated DIGESTER-174:
--------------------------------------

    Description: 
See documentation "Applying multiple annotation rule of the same type"
The inner annotation should be usable as a wrapper for the outer annotation, to apply several
rules to one element. Therefore the inner annotation has to have the very same defined @Target
annotations as the outer annotation. This is not the case for most of the rules, making them
practically useless. 
Example:
@BeanPropertySetter - its @Target is ElementType.Field
but its inner List 
@BeanPropertySetter.List - its @Target is ElementType.Type
The only place where this is correct are the Create Rules, which are the annotations from
the documentation.
May I suggest to create a test case or example for a multi annotation rule? The provided example
for annotated rules was very helpful for me, but is very simple and doesn't cover multi annotated
rules.
