AnyThread

@Target([AnnotationTarget.FUNCTION, AnnotationTarget.PROPERTY_GETTER, AnnotationTarget.PROPERTY_SETTER, AnnotationTarget.CONSTRUCTOR, AnnotationTarget.CLASS, AnnotationTarget.FILE, AnnotationTarget.VALUE_PARAMETER]) class AnyThread
androidx.annotation.AnyThread

Denotes that the annotated method can be called from any thread (e.g. it is "thread safe".) If the annotated element is a class, then all methods in the class can be called from any thread.

The main purpose of this method is to indicate that you believe a method can be called from any thread; static tools can then check that nothing you call from within this method or class have more strict threading requirements.

Example:

 @AnyThread public void deliverResult(D data) { ... }
