All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<DefaultType>

public enum DefaultType
extends Enum<DefaultType>

The DefaultType enumeration is used to specify the type of defaults to apply to a class. The Default annotation is used to specify which type of default to apply. If applied the serializer will synthesize an XML annotation for the fields or properties of the object. The synthesized annotations will have default values for its attributes.

FIELD

public static final DefaultType FIELD
This tells the serializer to default all member fields.


PROPERTY

public static final DefaultType PROPERTY
This tells the serializer to default all property methods.

Method Detail

values

public static DefaultType[] 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 (DefaultType c : DefaultType.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static DefaultType 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.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
