Annotation Interface Holding

Indicates a method precondition: the specified expressions must be held when the annotated method is invoked.

The argument is a string or set of strings that indicates the expression(s) that must be held, using the syntax of Java expressions described in the manual. The expressions evaluate to an intrinsic (built-in, synchronization) monitor, or an explicit Lock.
