15.4. RESTEasy Defined Annotations

Table 15.1. JAX-RS/RESTEasy Annotations

Annotation Usage
ClientResponseType This is an annotation that you can add to a RESTEasy client interface that has a return type of Response.
ContentEncoding Meta annotation that specifies a Content-Encoding to be applied via the annotated annotation.
DecorateTypes Must be placed on a DecoratorProcessor class to specify the supported types.
Decorator Meta-annotation to be placed on another annotation that triggers decoration.
Form This can be used as a value object for incoming/outgoing request/responses.
StringParameterUnmarshallerBinder Meta-annotation to be placed on another annotation that triggers a StringParameterUnmarshaller to be applied to a string based annotation injector.
Cache Set response Cache-Control header automatically.
NoCache Set Cache-Control response header of "nocache".
ServerCached Specifies that the response to this jax-rs method should be cached on the server.
ClientInterceptor Identifies an interceptor as a client-side interceptor.
DecoderPrecedence This interceptor is an Content-Encoding decoder.
EncoderPrecedence This interceptor is an Content-Encoding encoder.
HeaderDecoratorPrecedence HeaderDecoratorPrecedence interceptors should always come first as they decorate a response (on the server), or an outgoing request (on the client) with special, user-defined, headers.
RedirectPrecedence Should be placed on a PreProcessInterceptor.
SecurityPrecedence Should be placed on a PreProcessInterceptor.
ServerInterceptor Identifies an interceptor as a server-side interceptor.
NoJackson Placed on class, parameter, field or method when you don't want the Jackson provider to be triggered.
ImageWriterParams An annotation that a resource class can use to pass parameters to the IIOImageProvider.
DoNotUseJAXBProvider Put this on a class or parameter when you do not want the JAXB MessageBodyReader/Writer used but instead have a more specific provider you want to use to marshall the type.
Formatted Format XML output with indentations and newlines. This is a JAXB Decorator.
IgnoreMediaTypes Placed on a type, method, parameter, or field to tell JAXRS not to use JAXB provider for a certain media type
Stylesheet Specifies an XML stylesheet header.
Wrapped Put this on a method or parameter when you want to marshal or unmarshal a collection or array of JAXB objects.
WrappedMap Put this on a method or parameter when you want to marshal or unmarshal a map of JAXB objects.
XmlHeader Sets an XML header for the returned document.
BadgerFish A JSONConfig.
Mapped A JSONConfig.
XmlNsMap A JSONToXml.
MultipartForm This can be used as a value object for incoming/outgoing request/responses of the multipart/form-data mime type.
PartType Must be used in conjunction with Multipart providers when writing out a List or Map as a multipart/* type.
XopWithMultipartRelated This annotation can be used to process/produce incoming/outgoing XOP messages (packaged as multipart/related) to/from JAXB annotated objects.
After Used to add an expiration attribute when signing or as a stale check for verification.
Signed Convenience annotation that triggers the signing of a request or response using the DOSETA specification.
Verify Verification of input signature specified in a signature header.
Path This must exist either in the class or resource method. If it exists in both, the relative path to the resource method is a concatenation of the class and method.
PathParam Allows you to map variable URI path fragments into a method call.
QueryParam Allows you to map URI query string parameter or URL form encoded parameter to the method invocation.
CookieParam Allows you to specify the value of a cookie or object representation of an HTTP request cookie into the method invocation.
DefaultValue Can be combined with the other @*Param annotations to define a default value when the HTTP request item does not exist.
Context Allows you to specify instances of,,, javax.servlet.HttpServletRequest, javax.servlet.HttpServletResponse, and objects.
Encoded Can be used on a class, method, or param. By default, inject @PathParam and @QueryParams are decoded. By adding the @Encoded annotation, the value of these params are provided in encoded form.
