Annotation that makes package-info.java annotations auto-applied to sub packages

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      It would be extremely useful if there were an annotation that took another annotation's class as the value, and when applied to a package-info.java it would take the specified annotation and apply it to sub package package-info's as well.

      This would prevent the need to create a package-info for every package in a project or rely on external means such as a maven plugin.

      Example:

      @ApplyToChildren(Deprecated.class)
      package foo.bar;
