 * Field annotation used with properties to provide an indexed getter and setter for the property.
 * Groovy provides nice GPath syntax support for accessing indexed properties but Java tools
 * or frameworks may expect the JavaBean style setters and getters.
 * <p>
 * <em>Example usage: suppose you have a class with the following properties:
 * <pre>
 * {@code @IndexedProperty} FieldType[] someField
 * {@code @IndexedProperty} List<FieldType> otherField
 * {@code @IndexedProperty} List furtherField
 * </pre>
 * will add the following methods to the class containing the properties:
 * <pre>
 * FieldType getSomeField(int index) {
 *     someField[index]
 * }
 * FieldType getOtherField(int index) {
 *     otherField[index]
 * }
 * Object getFurtherField(int index) {
 *     furtherField[index]
 * }
 * void setSomeField(int index, FieldType val) {
 *     someField[index] = val
 * }
 * void setOtherField(int index, FieldType val) {
 *     otherField[index] = val
 * }
 * void setFurtherField(int index, Object val) {
 *     furtherField[index] = val
 * }
 * </pre>
 * Normal Groovy visibility rules for properties apply
 * (i.e. no <code>public, private or package
 * visibility can be specified) or you will receive a compile-time error message.
 * The normal Groovy property getters and setters will also be created.
