Interface InjectionPoint


public interface InjectionPoint

Provides access to metadata about an injection point. May represent an injected field or a parameter of a bean constructor, initializer method, producer method, disposer method or observer method.

Occasionally, a bean with scope @Dependent needs to access metadata relating to the object to which it belongs. The bean may inject an InjectionPoint representing the injection point into which the bean was injected.

For example, the following producer method creates injectable Loggers. The log category of a Logger depends upon the class of the object into which it is injected.

 @Produces 
 Logger createLogger(InjectionPoint injectionPoint) { 
    return Logger.getLogger( injectionPoint.getMember().getDeclaringClass().getName() );
 }
 

Only dependent objects, may obtain information about the injection point to which they belong.

Method Detail

getType

java.lang.reflect.Type getType()
Get the required type of injection point.

Returns:
the required type

getQualifiers

java.util.Set<java.lang.annotation.Annotation> getQualifiers()
Get the required qualifiers of the injection point.

Returns:
the required qualifiers

getBean

Bean<?> getBean()
Get the Bean object representing the bean that defines the injection point. If the injection point does not belong to a bean, return a null value.

Returns:
the Bean object representing bean that defines the injection point, of null if the injection point does not belong to a bean

getMember

java.lang.reflect.Member getMember()
Get the Field object in the case of field injection, the Method object in the case of method parameter injection or the Constructor object in the case of constructor parameter injection.

Returns:
the member

getAnnotated

Annotated getAnnotated()
Obtain an instance of AnnotatedField or AnnotatedParameter, depending upon whether the injection point is an injected field or a constructor/method parameter.

Returns:
an AnnotatedField or AnnotatedParameter

isDelegate

boolean isDelegate()
Determines if the injection point is a decorator delegate injection point.

Returns:
true if the injection point is a decorator delegate injection point, and false otherwise

isTransient

boolean isTransient()
Determines if the injection is a transient field.

Returns:
true if the injection point is a transient field, and false otherwise
