Status Quo

The public methods and internal algorithms in AnnotatedElementUtils are currently poorly documented or not documented at all. Furthermore, there are practically no regression tests in place to verify the current behavior.


  1. Document "get vs. find" semantics in the class-level Javadoc as well as for each public method.
  2. Document all public methods in AnnotatedElementUtils.
  3. Document internal search algorithms within AnnotatedElementUtils and rename methods, variables, etc. as necessary to make the intent clear.
  4. Test all public methods in AnnotatedElementUtils.

Affects: 4.0 GA
