-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Inner List Annotation has wrong @Target for most of the predefined annotation
rules
                 Key: DIGESTER-174
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIGESTER-174
             Project: Commons Digester
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.2
            Reporter: Andreas Sahlbach


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
was very helpful for me, but is very simple.
