Annotation Type Commit

public @interface Commit

The Commit annotation is used to mark a method within a serializable object that requires a callback from the persister once the deserialization completes. The commit method is invoked by the Persister after all fields have been assigned and after the validation method has been invoked, if the object has a method marked with the Validate annotation.

Typically the commit method is used to complete deserialization by allowing the object to build further data structures from the fields that have been created from the deserialization process. The commit method must be a no argument method or a method that takes a single Map object argument, and may throw an exception, in which case the deserialization process terminates.
