Annotation Type PreMatching

  • @Target(TYPE)
    public @interface PreMatching
    Global binding annotation that can be applied to a container request filter to indicate that such filter should be applied globally on all resources in the application before the actual resource matching occurs.

    The runtime will apply the filters marked with the @PreMatching annotation globally to all resources, before the incoming request has been matched to a particular resource method. Any named binding annotations will be ignored on a component annotated with the @PreMatching annotation.
