# Description

EndpointMetadata contains metadata about a controller and his method. Each annotation (@Get, @Body...) attached to a method are stored in a endpoint. EndpointMetadata convert this metadata to an array which contain arguments to call an Express method.

Example :

@Controller("/my-path") provide MyClass {

   public myMethod(){}


# Members

beforeMiddlewares: any[]

middlewares: any[]

afterMiddlewares: any[]

pathsMethods: IPathMethod[]

Route strategy.

readonly responses: Map<number, IResponseOptions>

statusCode: number

readonly parent: EndpointMetadata | undefined

Endpoint inherited from parent class.

get type(): Type<any>

set type(type: Type<any>)

get methodClassName(): string

get store(): Store

get params(): import("./ParamMetadata").ParamMetadata[]

get response(): IResponseOptions

get(key: any): any

Find the a value at the controller level. Let this value be extended or overridden by the endpoint itself.

statusResponse(code: string | number): IResponseOptions

Change the type and the collection type from the status code.

before(args: any[]): this

after(args: any[]): this

merge(args: any[]): this

Store all arguments collected via Annotation.
