Annotation Type ParametersDelegate

  • @Retention(RUNTIME)
    public @interface ParametersDelegate

    When applied to a field all of its child fields annotated with Parameter will be included during arguments parsing.

    Mainly useful when creating complex command based CLI interfaces, where several commands can share a set of arguments, but using object inheritance is not enough, due to no-multiple-inheritance restriction. Using ParametersDelegate any number of command sets can be shared by using composition pattern.

    Delegations can be chained (nested).
