>                 Key: GROOVY-7956
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-7956
>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: GEP
>            Reporter: Graeme Rocher
>            Priority: Major
>
> In order to aid static compilation for builders we have {{@DelegatesTo}} 
> which allows statically compiled code to know what the delegate of a closure 
> is.
> This proposal is to allow {{@DelegatesTo}} on {{Map}} types such that IDEs 
> and the static compiler can resolve the target type the named arguments are 
> to be used on.
> For example:
> {code}
> class Farm {
>      void animal(@DelegatesTo(Animal) Map arguments, 
> @DelegatesTo(AnimalBuilder) Closure callable) {
>              def animal = new Animal(arguments)
>              // handle closure
>     }
> } 
> class Animal { String name }
> {code}
> The following code would then fail to compile :
> {code}
> def farm = new Farm()
> // compilation failure, no name property on Animal
> farm.animal(nam: "Dog")  { 
> }
> {code}
> It would then be down to IDEs to also provide support for code completion etc.
