Two annotations on a single line

Clover is having problems with lines of code that look like this:


@RequestBody(required = false) byte @Nullable [] body) {

It is reporting an unexpected token on the second '@' (@Nullable)

thanks for the report, could you provide, whole method declaration along with Java and Clover versions you're using ?

Similar issue:, although it looks rather to be an issue of parsing type annotations introduced in Java8. 

This particular fragment is parameter for a Spring controller. The method is rather long, with many annotated parameters. I can work on creating a simpler reproduction. This was just one thing (out of several) that I noticed when running clover through mvn.

I understand it's Clover bug, but I'd like to gather the most information in order to reproduce it and fix the bug. But honestly speaking I was trying to reproduce this issue locally and I wasn't able to create Java compilable code, that's why I've asked for the whole method declaration. Which version of Java along with the update number are you using?

Which modules of Spring you're using, is there any compilation annotation processor which makes those annotation compilable?

I created public issue to track that, you can watch it here:
