Enum PropertyAccessor

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<PropertyAccessor>

    public enum PropertyAccessor
    extends Enum<PropertyAccessor>
    Enumeration used to define kinds of elements (called "property accessors") that annotations like JsonAutoDetect apply to.

    In addition to method types (GETTER/IS_GETTER, SETTER, CREATOR) and the field type (FIELD), 2 pseudo-types are defined for convenience: ALWAYS and NONE. These can be used to indicate, all or none of available method types (respectively), for use by annotations that takes JsonMethod argument.

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • GETTER

        public static final PropertyAccessor GETTER
        Getters are methods used to get a POJO field value for serialization, or, under certain conditions also for de-serialization. Latter can be used for effectively setting Collection or Map values in absence of setters, iff returned value is not a copy but actual value of the logical property.

        Since version 1.3, this does NOT include "is getters" (methods that return boolean and named 'isXxx' for property 'xxx'); instead, IS_GETTER is used}.

      • SETTER

        public static final PropertyAccessor SETTER
        Setters are methods used to set a POJO value for deserialization.
      • CREATOR

        public static final PropertyAccessor CREATOR
        Creators are constructors and (static) factory methods used to construct POJO instances for deserialization
      • FIELD

        public static final PropertyAccessor FIELD
        Field refers to fields of regular Java objects. Although they are not really methods, addition of optional field-discovery in version 1.1 meant that there was need to enable/disable their auto-detection, and this is the place to add it in.
      • IS_GETTER

        public static final PropertyAccessor IS_GETTER
        "Is getters" are getter-like methods that are named "isXxx" (instead of "getXxx" for getters) and return boolean value (either primitive, or Boolean).
      • NONE

        public static final PropertyAccessor NONE
        This pseudo-type indicates that none of accessors if affected.
      • ALL

        public static final PropertyAccessor ALL
        This pseudo-type indicates that all accessors are affected.

      • values

        public static PropertyAccessor[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (PropertyAccessor c : PropertyAccessor.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static PropertyAccessor valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
