Annotation Type StructConverter

public @interface StructConverter

A StructConverter is a special type of converter that handles the conversion of a specific database Struct type. This is normally used for extended database types such as spatial geometric types. A StructConverter is different than a regular attribute Converter, and does not implement the same interface. A StructConverter will be used to convert any matching Struct type.
