Annotation Type Nullable

  • @Documented
    public @interface Nullable
    The annotated element could be null under some circumstances.

    In general, this means developers will have to read the documentation to determine when a null value is acceptable and whether it is necessary to check for a null value.

    This annotation is useful mostly for overriding a Nonnull annotation. Static analysis tools should generally treat the annotated items as though they had no annotation, unless they are configured to minimize false negatives.

    When this annotation is applied to a method it applies to the method return value.
