Annotation Interface BinaryName

Represents a binary name as defined in the Java Language Specification, section 13.1.

For example, in

  package org.checkerframework.checker.signature;
  public class SignatureChecker {
    private class Inner {}
the binary names for the two types are org.checkerframework.checker.signature.SignatureChecker and org.checkerframework.checker.signature.SignatureChecker$Inner.

Binary names and internal form only differ by the use of '.' vs. '/' as package separator.

The binary name should not be confused with the internal form, which is a variant of the binary name that actually appears in the class file.
