+/**
+ * Indicates that an interface type declaration is intended to be a
+ * <i>functional interface</i> as defined by the Java Language
+ * Specification.
+ *
+ * Conceptually, a functional interface has exactly one abstract
+ * method.  Since {@linkplain java.lang.reflect.Method#isDefault()
+ * default methods} have an implementation, they are not abstract.  If
+ * an interface declares an abstract method overriding one of the
+ * public methods of {@code java.lang.Object}, that also does
+ * <em>not</em> count toward the interface's abstract method count
+ * since any implementation of the interface will have an
+ * implementation from {@code java.lang.Object} or elsewhere.
+ *
+ * <p>Note that instances of functional interfaces can be created with
+ * lambda expressions, method references, or constructor references.
+ *
+ * <p>If a type is annotated with this annotation type, compilers are
+ * required to generate an error message unless:
+ *
+ * <ul>
+ * <li> The type is an interface type and not an annotation type, enum, or class.
+ * <li> The annotated type satisfies the requirements of a functional interface.
+ * </ul>
