    Default Custom Annotations in GWT on Client side

    Custom Annotations in GWT on Client side


    hi,

    i know this is part of GWT - but let me please ask this question.

    is it possible to use custom annotations in GWT on the client side?

    i tried this for a class and wanted to get the annotation data with this.getClass().getAnnotations() in the constructor. But i get the error "The method getAnnotations() is undefined for the type Class ..."

    thx paco

    Annotations in client code can be used during GWT's rebind phase of the
    compilation, but they are not accessible at runtime on the client side.

    have a look at:

    you can use a GWT reflection library, i.e., gwtent
    Code:
    ClassType type = TypeOracle.Instance.getClassType(getClass().getName());
    
    Annotation[] annotations = type.getAnnotations();
