I didnt see anything in the annotation videos that discusses the Role.ADMIN element and whether or not it is required

Was this quiz question, put in by mistake, or was there suppose to be a video covering the topic of @Secure Role.ADMIN

1 Answer

The only element that is not required is if the element is value. So in the exercise, the annotation of

@Secure(role = Role.ADMIN)

the role element is required because it is not "value".
