- Type Parameters:
R- the return type of this visitor's methods
P- the type of the additional parameter to this visitor's methods.
- All Implemented Interfaces:
@SupportedSourceVersion(RELEASE_6) public abstract class AbstractAnnotationValueVisitor6<R,P> extends Object implements AnnotationValueVisitor<R,P>
implemented by this class may have methods added to it in the
future to accommodate new, currently unknown, language structures
added to future versions of the Java™ programming language.
Therefore, methods whose names begin with
"visit" may be
added to this class in the future; to avoid incompatibilities,
classes which extend this class should not declare any instance
methods with names beginning with
When such a new visit method is added, the default
implementation in this class will be to call the
visitUnknown method. A new abstract annotation
value visitor class will also be introduced to correspond to the
new language level; this visitor will have different default
behavior for the visit method in question. When the new visitor is
introduced, all or portions of this visitor may be deprecated.

AbstractAnnotationValueVisitor6Deprecated.Release 6 is obsolete; update to a visitor for a newer release level.Constructor for concrete subclasses to call.
visitVisits any annotation value as if by passing itself to that value's
accept. The invocation
v.visit(av, p)is equivalent to
visitVisits an annotation value as if by passing itself to that value's
nullfor the additional parameter. The invocation
v.visit(av)is equivalent to
visitUnknownVisits an unknown kind of annotation value. This can occur if the language evolves and new kinds of value can be stored in an annotation.

- Implementation Requirements:
- The default implementation of this method in
AbstractAnnotationValueVisitor6will always throw
new UnknownAnnotationValueException(av, p). This behavior is not required of a subclass.
av- the unknown value being visited
p- a visitor-specified parameter
- the result of the visit
