public abstract @interface


implements Annotation

Class Overview

This annotation is used to initialize or customize an object immediately after its fields have been partially deserialized. If a custom reader exists, any custom initializer is called after the execution of the custom reader.

Usage of this annotation is discouraged. Use SerCustomInitPostGraph instead, see the note below.

Required prototype:

 private void init()
Note that the visibility MUST be private to make sure that sub-classes do not accidentally override a custom initializer method of a super-class.

Important state information: When this method is called, the object may not have been fully restored:
- primitives are restored
- object references may be null or non-null and refer to not fully deserialized objects
