Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products.

Annotation Type PreDelete

  • @Target(value=METHOD)
    public @interface PreDelete
    Identifies a callback method to be invoked before an Entity of any of the specified kinds is deleted from the datastore. If kinds() is not provided the callback will execute for all kinds. Methods with this annotation must return void, must accept a single argument of type DeleteContext, must not throw any checked exceptions, must not be static, and must belong to a class with a no-arg constructor. Neither the method nor the no-arg constructor of the class to which it belongs are required to be public. Methods with this annotation are free to throw any unchecked exception they like. Throwing an unchecked exception will prevent callbacks that have not yet been executed from running, and the exception will propagate to the code that invoked the datastore operation that resulted in the invocation of the callback. Throwing an unchecked exception from a callback will prevent the datastore operation from executing.
