package org.codehaus.groovy.transform;

import java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy;
import java.lang.annotation.Target;

 * This is an annotation on some item that indicates that
 * an associated transform classes should be executed.  As of
 * Groovy 1.6 the only valid target is the annotation type.
 * Each of the class names in the value must be annotated with
 * {@link GroovyASTTransformation}.
 * It is a compile time error to specify a {@link GroovyASTTransformationClass}
 * that is not accessible at compile time.  It need not be available at runtime.

 * @author Roshan Dawrani (roshandawrani)

// in the future the target will be wider than annotations, but for now it is just on annotations
public @interface GroovyASTTransformationClass {
    String[] value() default {};
    Class[] classes() default {};
