public interface: AnnotationMirror [javadoc | source] Represents an annotation. An annotation associates a value with each element of an annotation type.

Annotations should be compared using the {@code equals} method. There is no guarantee that any particular annotation will always be represented by the same object.

Method from javax.lang.model.element.AnnotationMirror Summary:
getAnnotationType,   getElementValues
Method from javax.lang.model.element.AnnotationMirror Detail:
 public DeclaredType getAnnotationType()
    Returns the type of this annotation.
 public Map<ExecutableElement, AnnotationValue> getElementValues()
    Returns the values of this annotation's elements. This is returned in the form of a map that associates elements with their corresponding values. Only those elements with values explicitly present in the annotation are included, not those that are implicitly assuming their default values. The order of the map matches the order in which the values appear in the annotation's source.

    Note that an annotation mirror of a marker annotation type will by definition have an empty map.

    To fill in default values, use getElementValuesWithDefaults .
