Annotation Type Experimental



  • @Retention(value=CLASS)
     @Target(value={ANNOTATION_TYPE,CONSTRUCTOR,FIELD,METHOD,TYPE})
     @Documented
    public @interface Experimental
    Signifies that a public API (public class, method or field) is subject to incompatible changes, or even removal, in a future release. An API bearing this annotation is exempt from any compatibility guarantees made by its containing library. Note that the presence of this annotation implies nothing about the quality or performance of the API in question, only the fact that it is not "API-frozen."

    It is generally safe for applications to depend on experimental APIs, at the cost of some extra work during upgrades. However, it is generally inadvisable for libraries (which get included on users' class paths, outside the library developers' control) to do so.
