Annotation Type NameBinding

public @interface NameBinding

Meta-annotation used to create name binding annotations for filters and interceptors.

Name binding via annotations is only supported as part of the Server API. In name binding, a name-binding annotation is first defined using the @NameBinding meta-annotation:

  @Target({ ElementType.TYPE, ElementType.METHOD })
  @Retention(value = RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
  public @interface Logged { }
The defined name-binding annotation is then used to decorate a filter or interceptor class (more than one filter or interceptor may be decorated with the same name-binding annotation):
  public class LoggingFilter
          implements ContainerRequestFilter, ContainerResponseFilter {
At last, the name-binding annotation is applied to the resource method(s) to which the name-bound JAX-RS provider(s) should be bound to:
  public class MyResourceClass {
      public String hello(@PathParam("name") String name) {
          return "Hello " + name;
A name-binding annotation may also be attached to a custom JAX-RS Application subclass. In such case a name-bound JAX-RS provider bound by the annotation will be applied to all resource and sub-resource methods in the JAX-RS application:
  public class MyApplication extends {
