QueryParam Interface


Annotation for query parameters to be appended to a REST API Request URI.

Example 1:

 Single> listByResourceGroup(@PathParam("resourceGroupName") String
 resourceGroupName, @PathParam("subscriptionId") String subscriptionId, @QueryParam("$filter") String
 filter, @QueryParam("$expand") String expand, @QueryParam("$top") Integer top, @QueryParam("api-version") String

The value of parameters filter, expand, top, apiVersion will be encoded and encoded value will be used to replace the corresponding path segment {$filter}, {$expand}, {$top}, {api-version} respectively.

Example 2: (A use case where PathParam.encoded=true will be used)

It is possible that, a path segment variable can be used to represent sub path:

  String getValues(@PathParam("subpath") String param, @QueryParam("connectionString") String connectionString);

In this case, if consumer pass "a=b" as the value for query then the resolved url looks like: "http://wq.com/foo/paramblah/values?connectionString=a%3Db"

For such cases the encoded attribute can be used:

  String getValues(@PathParam("subpath") String param, @QueryParam("query", encoded = true) String query);

In this case, if consumer pass "a=b" as the value for param1 then the resolved url looks as expected: "http://wq.com/foo/paramblah/values?connectionString=a=b"

public interface QueryParam implements Annotation



A value true for this argument indicates that value of value() is already encoded hence engine should not encode it, by default value will be encoded.


The name of the variable in the endpoint uri template which will be replaced with the value of the parameter annotated with this annotation.
