Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1021) Provide methods to retrieve all fields/methods annotated with a specific type
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2014 20:48:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14048139#comment-14048139
] 

Alexander Müller commented on LANG-1021:
----------------------------------------

I don't need the List-versions either but FieldUtils uses this redundant style, e.g. {{getAllFields()}}
and {{getAllFieldsList()}}:
http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-lang/apidocs/org/apache/commons/lang3/reflect/FieldUtils.html

> I find myself repeatedly searching for fields (or methods) that are annotated with a
specified annotation like this (field-only example):
> {code}
> List<Field> fieldsWithAnnotation = new ArrayList<>(); 
> Field[] fields = FieldUtils.getAllFields(type);
> for (Field field : fields) {
>     Annotation fieldAnnotation = field.getAnnotation(annotation);
>     if (fieldAnnotation != null) {
>         fieldsWithAnnotation.add(fieldAnnotation);
>     }
> }
> {code}
> Commons Lang could provide these methods:
> {code}
> public Field[] AnnotationUtils.getFieldsWithAnnotation(Annotation annotation);
> public List<Field> AnnotationUtils.getFieldListWithAnnotation(Annotation annotation);
> public Method[] AnnotationUtils.getMethodsWithAnnotation(Annotation annotation);
> public List<Method> AnnotationUtils.getMethodListWithAnnotation(Annotation annotation);
> {code}
