/**
 * This annotation adds Java-style listener support to a class based on an annotated Collection-property. <br/>
* * For any given Collection property, several methods will be written into the enclosing class during the compile phase. These * changes are visible from Java or other languages. The List is intended to hold listeners of some sort, and the methods * addListener, removeListener, and getListeners are all added to the class. The actual methods names depend on the generic * type of the collection. * * Given the following example:<br/> * <pre> * class MyClass { * @groovy.beans.ListenerList * List<java.awt.event.ActionListener> listeners * } * </pre> * The following code is generated: * <pre> * public class MyClass extends java.lang.Object { * * @groovy.beans.ListenerList * private java.util.List<java.awt.event.ActionListener> listeners * * public void addActionListener(java.awt.event.ActionListener listener) { * if ( listener == null) { * return null * } * if ( listeners == null) { * listeners = [] * } * listeners.add(listener) * } * * public void removeActionListener(java.awt.event.ActionListener listener) { * if ( listener == null) { * return null * } * if ( listeners == null) { * listeners = [] * } * listeners.remove(listener) * } * * public java.awt.event.ActionListener[] getActionListeners() { * java.lang.Object __result = [] * if ( listeners != null) { * __result.addAll(listeners) * } * return (( __result ) as java.awt.event.ActionListener[]) * } * * public void fireActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent param0) { * if ( listeners != null) { * def __list = new java.util.ArrayList(listeners) * for (java.lang.Object listener : __list ) { * listener.actionPerformed(param0) * } * } * } * } * </pre> * A fire method is created for each public method in the target class. In this case, ActionListener only has one * method. For a four method interface, four fire methods would be created. <br/>
* * The annotation can take the following parameters: * <pre> * name = a suffix for creating the add, remove, and get methods. * Default: Name of the listener type * In the above example, if name is set to MyListener, then the class will have an addMyListener, * removeMyListener, and getMyListeners methods. * * synchronize = Whether or not the methods created should be synchronized at the method level. * Default: false * </pre> * * <strong>Compilation Errors - Using this annotation incorrectly results in compilation errors rather * than runtime errors. A list of potential problems includes: * <ul> * <li>This annotation can only be applied to a field of type Collection * <li>The annotated Collection field must have a generic type * <li>The annotated Collection field must not have a generic wildcard declared * <li>The generated methods must not already exist * </ul> * @see ListenerListASTTransformation * * @author Alexander Klein * @author Hamlet D'Arcy */ @java.lang.annotation.Documented @Retention(RetentionPolicy.SOURCE) @Target(ElementType.FIELD) @GroovyASTTransformationClass('groovy.beans.ListenerListASTTransformation') @interface ListenerList { String name() default "" boolean synchronize() default false }
