Annotation Type Order


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value={TYPE,METHOD,FIELD})
public @interface Order

Annotation that defines ordering. The value is optional, and represents order value as defined in the Ordered interface. Lower values have higher priority. The default value is Ordered.LOWEST_PRECEDENCE, indicating lowest priority (losing to any other specified order value).

NOTE: Annotation-based ordering is supported for specific kinds of components only, e.g. for annotation-based AspectJ aspects. Spring container strategies, on the other hand, are typically based on the Ordered interface in order to allow for configurable ordering of each instance.
