Annotation Type Group

  • @Target(METHOD)
    public @interface Group

    Identifies the key for a group.

    @Group should be used when you have control over the key class. For example:

     class User {
        String office;
        int hashCode() {
           // Defines the hash for the key, normally used to determine location
        // Override the location by specifying a group, all keys in the same
        // group end up with the same owner
