@proxy marks a class as implementing interfaces and members
The annotation applies to any class. It is inherited by subclasses from both superclass and interfaces.
If a class is annotated with
@proxy, or it implements any class that is
annotated, then the class is considered to implement any interface and
any member with regard to static type analysis. As such, it is not a static
type warning to assign the object to a variable of any type, and it is not
a static type warning to access any member of the object.
This only applies to static type warnings. The runtime type of the object
is unaffected. It is not considered to implement any special interfaces at
runtime, so assigning it to a typed variable may fail in checked mode, and
testing it with the
is operator will not work for any type except the
ones it actually implements.
Tools that understand
@proxy should tell the user if a class using
does not override the
noSuchMethod declared on Object.
The intent of the
@proxy notation is to create objects that implement a
type (or multiple types) that are not known at compile time. If the types
are known at compile time, a class can be written that implements these
