Xtend 2.4.3 Extends Active Annotations to the File System

by Ralph Winzinger on  Sep 12, 2013

After active annotations were introduced in Xtend 2.4, they received an API for accessing the file system with version 2.4.3. Active annotations let developers influence the way, Xtend source code is translated to Java source code. With the help of the new file system API, further artifacts like property files or fingerprints and digests can be derived from Xtend sources.

Dagger: A Dependency Injection Framework For Android

by Kostis Kapelonis on  Oct 02, 2012 1

Dagger is a new dependency injection framework for the Android environment. It offers a subset of features of Google Guice (some of the developers work on both projects) but focuses on a lightweight solution in order to offer better performance. Dagger also attempts to report binding errors during compile time instead of run time.

Annotation-Driven Dependency Injection with Google Guice 3.0

by Michael Floyd on  Apr 20, 2011 7

Late last month Google released Guice 3.0, a Java framework that implements the dependency injection (DI) design pattern. The motivation behind Guice was to make it easier for programmers to write DI code by reducing the need to write boilerplate factories. This article examines the new 3.0 features, loks at how Guice 3.0 supports Spring DI, and introduces Guice 4.1 (a.k.a. MiniGuice).

Aspects: An Easy Tool for Annotation Handling?

by Srini Penchikala on  Sep 08, 2008 3

While many think of Aspects for cross-cutting concerns such as transaction management, persistence and role based security, another key value for them has been as an enabler for Annotations for ordinary projects. Using Aspects as a way to implement annotation handlers is a different way to think of them than as the traditional architect's "cross cutting concerns" view.

Article: Spring 2.5: New Features in Spring MVC

by Geoffrey Wiseman on  Aug 13, 2008 15

Rossen Stoyanchev of SpringSource wrote an article for InfoQ about the new features in Spring MVC that are part of Spring 2.5, notably the annotation-based approaches that are informally known as @MVC. These allow Spring MVC applications to be written with simpler annotated POJOs rather than xml-wired implementations of strict interfaces.

Configuring Hibernate with Annotations

by Scott Delap on  Feb 10, 2007

Annotation Transformers in TestNG: The Sweet Spot for Annotations?

by Rob Thornton on  Oct 31, 2006 3

In the ongoing search to find the balance between XML and annotations, TestNG has introduced the concept of annotation transformers. An annotation transformer is code that will override the behavior of existing annotations. This allows you to modify your annotation without using XML and without recompiling your source. You will have to recompile your annotation transformers if you change them.
