Indicates that the named compiler warnings should be suppressed in the annotated element (and in all program elements contained in the annotated element). Note that the set of warnings suppressed in a given element is a superset of the warnings suppressed in all containing elements. For example, if you annotate a class to suppress one warning and annotate a method to suppress another, both warnings will be suppressed in the method.
As a matter of style, programmers should always use this annotation on the most deeply nested element where it is effective. If you want to suppress a warning in a particular method, you should annotate that method rather than its class.

Inherited Method Summary
|abstract Class<? extends Annotation>||
Returns the annotation type of this annotation.
Returns the hash code of this annotation, as defined below:
The hash code of an annotation is the sum of the hash codes
of its members (including those with default values), as defined
The hash code of an annotation member is (127 times the hash code
of the member-name as computed by
The hash code of a member-value depends on its type:
Returns a string representation of this annotation.
public String value ()
The set of warnings that are to be suppressed by the compiler in the annotated element. Duplicate names are permitted. The second and successive occurrences of a name are ignored. The presence of unrecognized warning names is not an error: Compilers must ignore any warning names they do not recognize. They are, however, free to emit a warning if an annotation contains an unrecognized warning name.
"unchecked" is used to suppress
unchecked warnings. Compiler vendors should document the
additional warning names they support in conjunction with this
annotation type. They are encouraged to cooperate to ensure
that the same names work across multiple compilers.
