Note that instances of functional interfaces can be created with lambda expressions, method references, or constructor references.
If a type is annotated with this annotation type, compilers are required to generate an error message unless:
- The type is an interface type and not an annotation type, enum, or class.
- The annotated type satisfies the requirements of a functional interface.
However, the compiler will treat any interface meeting the
definition of a functional interface as a functional interface
regardless of whether or not a
annotation is present on the interface declaration.
